Cert Fin is the 2017 Budget gift for anti fraud professionals

Cyber security is critical for safeguarding the integrity and stability of the financial sector of India. A Computer Emergency Response Team for Financial Sector (CERT-Fin) will be established,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley promised in his Budget Speech for the year 2017.

The entity will work in close coordination with all financial sector regulators and other stakeholders.

Last year, more than 32 lakh debit cards of various public and private sector banks were compromised. It was one of the biggest cyber frauds related to banks in India.

Change in the structure

Many of our members suggest us the changes. We listen to them and we constantly improve our offerings. One such suggestion was to change the certification structure to reduce the costs of the examinations for the experienced professionals. We have opened the direct route of obtaining the Certification in Money Laundering Compliance.

Direct Examination

Firstly, upto 2016, it was necessary for the students to opt for the study material to take up the certifications. However, the professionals who are already working in this profession don’t really need the study material. From the year 2017, we are allowing the professionals to take up the exams without study material and as a result the aspirants would have to pay only the fees for Examinations and Certifications.
