Confirming vulnerabilities of data among financial institutions in Nigeria, the Managing Director, Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS), Mr. Ade Shonubi, called on banks to take security issues very seriously and advised financial institutions to continually deploy the right technology solution that would address all forms of vulnerabilities.

He advised banks not to relax their efforts in the ongoing fight against financial theft and to come up with measures that would address the current trend where Fin-Tech vendors now roll out different applications with tempting incentives that would lure a whole lot of bank customers away from the banking sector. He said such trend, if not checked, may give room to huge financial theft since the operations of the Fin-Tech are not regulated.
