The Drug Enforcement Commission-DEC-is concerned that some institutions such as Banks  that host Digital Financial Service platforms are not reporting cases of digital fraud.

DEC Head of Information Communication Technology-ICT- and Digital Forensics, MATHIAS KAMANGA says some institutions are holding back from reporting cases to shield themselves from exposing their compromised systems.

Mr. KAMANGA said this during a panel discussion titled, “The role of law enforcement agencies in ensuring cyber-security in Digital Financial Systems.”

This was during the Zambia Information Communications and Technology Authority-ZICTA- FSD- Financial Services Stakeholders Engagement in Lusaka today.

Speaking at the same event, Anti Corruption Commission -ACC- Digital Forensic Analyst, CHRISTOPHER MULENGA called for the establishment of a permanent taskforce to deal with Digital Financial Crimes.

And Zambia Police Detective Inspector under the Cyber Crimes Unit, MICHAEL ILISHEBO has advised people who lose devices that have access to their digital financial service platforms to find alternative means to change their login credentials before reporting to the Police.

Mr. ILISHEBO said securing access to digital financial services should be the first course of action to prevent fraud.
