“Cyber crime has become a major concern for companies and organizations in the Middle East, particularly across banking and financial institutions. The increased instances of security breaches and other forms of cyber attacks are because of the lack of information on the importance of installing and implementing an IT security solution,” said Jamal Al Jasmi, General Manager, EIBFS. “Financial institutions today offer Internet-based and mobile-banking services, placing them under increasing pressure to provide enhanced customer protection against phishing, sophisticated malware, and other fraudulent activities. This event demonstrates our move to play a significant role in the campaign to make businesses and individuals aware of these cyber threats. Through this seminar, we were aiming to teach participants the essential information on how to avoid these attacks and what to do when being attacked.”
The event was broken down into of six key sessions that were aimed at informing participants on how to avoid cyber crimes and what to do when you become a victim of a cyber attack. Topics discussed included;
• Cyber threats against banks and online banking fraud: New Trends
• Cyber Fraud: Are you ready?
• Cyber crime challenges in banks
• Security trends for banks
• ATM and POS fraud
