ANZ has launched Se­cu­rity & Fraud Aware­ness Week in Fiji in an ef­fort to raise aware­ness and un­der­stand­ing among staff on the im­por­tance of safe­guard­ing the bank and cus­tomers against fraud.

Di­rec­tor of the Fiji Fi­nan­cial In­tel­li­gence Unit of the Re­serve Bank of Fiji, Razim Buksh, was the guest speaker at the launch of ANZ Se­cu­rity & Fraud Aware­ness Week held at ANZ House, Suva, yes­ter­day.

“As cus­to­di­ans of your cus­tomers’ money, staff are the face of the bank and en­trusted with great re­spon­si­bil­ity to safe­guard their in­ter­ests,” said Mr Buksh.

“Please do as much as pos­si­ble to raise aware­ness among your­selves, and among your cus­tomers, to keep per­sonal bank ac­count de­tails safe from the in­creased risk of fraud that we’re not only ex­pe­ri­enc­ing here in Fiji, but across the world as fraud be­comes in­creas­ingly so­phis­ti­cated.”

ANZ Fiji Act­ing CEO, Saud Mi­nam, said: “As a bank that’s fully com­mit­ted to our valu­able cus­tomers and to Fiji, we have a moral obli­ga­tion to con­tin­u­ously ed­u­cate our­selves on ways of safe­guard­ing our cus­tomers and our busi­ness against fraud­u­lent ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Mr Mi­nam added: “Aware­ness starts with us, and now that cus­tomers are in­creas­ingly do­ing their ev­ery­day bank­ing on­line, ev­ery­one needs to be par­tic­u­larly dili­gent about the way we han­dle per­sonal in­for­ma­tion on­line, in­clud­ing per­sonal com­put­ers, lap­tops, mo­bile phones and tablets.”

ANZ staff will this week hold aware­ness work­shops and in­ter­nal com­pe­ti­tions aimed at rais­ing aware­ness on threats and pre­cau­tions to safe­guard against cybercrime, email phish­ing and credit/debit card fraud, among oth­ers.
