ACFE seminar to focus on cyber security risks

Muscat: The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Oman Chapter is holding an evening seminar on operational and cyber security risks at the College of Banking and Financial Studies (CBFS) on Tuesday at 6 pm as part of their continuing professional education (CPE) session.
Dr Hamad Bin Salim Al Rawahi, the Executive President of Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of Oman will be the chief guest at the seminar.
“Information and IT security is a major concern for organisations, their customers, and the wider financial system. Cyber-attacks are now a daily occurrence, threatening billions of dollars of assets and the data of millions of customers. Executives understand that they need to act, but very few have a grip on the threat or an effective plan to respond,” said Davis Kallukaran, President ACFE Oman Chapter.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) is the world’s largest anti-fraud organization incorporated in the United States and headquartered in Austin, Texas. The Association is the premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with more than 85,000 members the ACFE is reducing business fraud worldwide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession. ACFE Oman Chapter is sponsored by College of Banking and Financial Studies.
The talk on Operational& Cyber Security Risks will be delivered by Venkatesh Kallur, the Chief Risk Officer at Al Izz Islamic Bank. He is a qualified “C-Suite” leadership coach and mentor with accomplished experience across banking, and financial services.
