Stakeholders involved in anti-fraud functions in various banks will gather for a forum to be hosted by Access Bank Plc today. The theme of the forum is: “Fraud Management – The need for a Harmonised Approach.”
The forum is an initiative of the bank to engage stakeholders on how to proactively solve the industry’s fraud challenges and to minimise frauds with active collaboration amongst stakeholders. “It will also provide an opportunity for anti-fraud officers of banks to further interact on ways this menace (fraud) can be curbed by their joint collaboration.
“Representatives from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Inspector General of Police, Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), Akintola Williams Deloitte House, Ernst & Young, KPMG and NIBSS are expected to attend the forum with other participants from various banks,” a statement from the bank explained.
According to the Chief Audit Executive of Access Bank, Mr. Yinka Tiamiyu, “The anti-fraud forum is another way Access Bank demonstrates its commitment to go the extra mile towards using collaboration in fraud prevention.”
