If you have no external users, why not put the main repository on the LAN
instead of a copy? If you need an offsite copy for backup, do the svnsync
periodically to the WAN copy where you don't have to worry about any other commits.

Should I be worried about banking transactions or credit card orders?

You could use any kind of VPN you want with the remote site. Use an IPSEC
tunnel between hosts if you don't trust SSL. Or OpenVPN with blowfish.
