National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has extended its partnership with the Ministry of Interior MOI, to raise awareness on social media for combating cybercrimes and protecting society from cyber related challenges.

The partnership ran a successful cybercrime awareness campaign, which has achieved high engagement rates on the bank’s social channels.

On this occasion, NBK GCEO, Isam Al Sager honoured the Technical Support Section in the Cybercrime Department who took part in the campaign, in appreciation for their efforts to raise social awareness against cybercrime. The awarding ceremony was attended by NBK officials.

As part of this campaign, NBK and MOI social media platforms will be posting awareness messages aiming to raise social awareness of the basics of cybersecurity, including videos by a group of experts and specialists from the Cybercrime Department of the MOI.

This sponsorship comes in support of anti-cybercrime efforts and the Central Bank of Kuwait’s “Let’s Be Aware” campaign. Awareness messages cover key topics in this area including protection from fraudulent banking messages, hacking of banking applications and other topics directly related to the security of customers and their accounts.

As part of its efforts to support the anti-cybercrime in Kuwait, NBK saves no effort in educating the community about the risks of these crimes and supporting the efforts of governmental institutions in Kuwait in this regard.

NBK frequently organizes various activities that contribute to raising awareness about all topics related to the banking sector. It also organizes a wide range of training courses in the areas of combating fraud and financial crime, and frequently posts related awareness material on its social platforms.
