Financial institutions must conduct rigorous campaigns to increase awareness on cybercrime at all levels in every organization, speakers said at a workshop on Thursday. 

The workshop, titled “Cybercrime Awareness,” was jointly organized by Youth Journalist Forum Bangladesh (YJFB) and Cyber Crime Awareness (CCA) Foundation at the Shadhinota Hall in Dhaka’s Segunbagicha area on Thursday.

Addressing the program, the speakers said in the age of technological development, it is expected that cybercrime would increase around the world. 

“Bangladesh is not safe from cybercrime either. The financial institutions have to practise extra caution because they are the primary target of cybercriminals,” said Nizam Chowdhury, chairman of NRB Global who attended the workshop as chief guest. 

Presided over by YJFB's Tanvir Aladin, the event was also attended by Saifuddin Nasir, director of Jamuna Oil Company Ltd, as special guest. 

Cybersecurity trainer and researcher Mohammad Mehedi Hasan distributed certificates among 100 journalists who attended the workshop.

CCA Foundation Convener Kazi Mustafiz, Advocate Kazi Oali Uddin Faisal of Lawyers Association Bangladesh, BSS Deputy Chief Reporter Ruhul Goni Joty and BSS News Editor Ayub Bhuyan attended the workshop, among others.
