GCash received recognition from the Philippine National Police for its Anti-Cybercrime Response – the only fintech company to get recognition in the fight against cybercrimes.
GCash and its executives were recognized by the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG) during the ACG’s 8th Founding Anniversary, making it the only fintech company in the country to do so.
The awards were in recognition of GCash’s commitment to the ACG’s cybercrime campaign called “Strengthening ACG Response Towards the New Normal.” Through the efforts of the GCash’s Enterprise Risk Management Group, cybercrime activities were identified and thwarted in cooperation with the ACG.
The awardees were led by GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon, Chief Risk Officer Don Niño Santos, Head Legal Counsel Cef Sison, and Enterprise Risk Management Head Ingrid Beroña. Representing the PNP were Police Corporal Lorengilene de Leon, Police Lieutenant Michael Bernardo, and Patrolman Paul Jordan Apolinario
“We are thankful to the Philippine National Police’s Anti-Cybercrime Group for the recognition. We at GCash take security seriously, and will continue to work and cooperate with the PNP to protect our customers while they use the app,” Sazon said.
For its part, GCash has been consistently pushing efforts in keeping its community safe and secure. It has launched several security communications campaigns revolving on social media and through the GCash app, and have even developed an employee ambassadorship program aimed at raising awareness on best practices in app and customer security.
GCash has also signed an agreement with the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) ensuring that it provides the highest standard of anti-money laundering, counter terrorism financing, and fraud measures.
