Campaign to Boost Digital Fraud Awareness in Bahrain

The Corporate Communication and Marketing Committee under the umbrella of the Bahrain Association of Banks (BAB) held a meeting at the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) headquarters to discuss the executive plan of a national campaign to raise awareness of the various digital fraud targeting customers of financial and banking institutions.

The campaign will be launched in partnership with the Central Bank of Bahrain, Ministry of Interior’s General Directorate of Anti-Corruption Economic and Electronic Security, Telecommunications Regulatory Authority and members of the association in the financial sector. 

CEO of BAB, Dr. Waheed Al Qassim, says: “The national campaign plays an important role in keeping the Kingdom of Bahrain among the developed nations in the field of cybersecurity as a crucial pillar for progress in the development of digital banking services.”

Corporate Communications and Marketing Committee Deputy Head, Nadera Abuali said: “Fraudsters are constantly developing their techniques which requires us to step up efforts to raise awareness of these techniques. Our aim is to educate customers on the importance of maintaining their data security and what action to take should they be subjected to a fraud attempt.”

Further details on the national campaign will be shared in due course.
