CBN rewards FirstBank’s fight against e-fraud

FirstBank has won two of the three awards in the keenly-contested Nigerian Electronic Fraud Forum (NeFF) Annual Dinner and Awards Night held at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.

FirstBank FraudDesk emerged as the “Best FraudDesk” and the “most Cooperative FraudDesk” in the Industry.

These are recognition of the bank’s efforts in combating e-fraud as well as curbing cyber-crime, thereby frustrating all forms of criminal activities targeted at its valued customers in every nook and cranny of the country.

The winner was generated through an online survey carried out by the Central Bank of Nigeria in partnership with NIBBS.

The bank with the majority of votes across all sectors won.

The awards prove that investment in security of customer’s funds does have its rewards.

Following the appointment of Dr. Adesola Kazeem Adeduntan as FirstBank MD/ CEO, FirstBank management embarked on reengineering of the bank’s technology, operations and upscaling the skill of its personnel with security of its customer’s funds as key priority, given the bank’s massive investments in alternate electronic transaction channels and technology.
