First Bank of Nigeria Limited has been re-elected into the Board of Advisors of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) for the third consecutive time, a reaffirmation of its leadership position in corporate governance and risk management.

The PCI SSC is an open, global forum for the development of payment card security standards which works with organisations around the world to protect businesses and consumers against data theft by continuously developing new payment security standards, cyber security training courses, and certification programmes.

Head of Information Security Operations at First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Lara Nwokedi, has been representing FirstBank on the Board of PCI SSC in the fight against payment fraud and data breaches globally. Nwokedi, a payment card industry professional, security lead auditor and implementer, has many years experience in information security and has led several initiatives in the bank.

First Bank has been the only African bank elected to the PCI SSC Board a feat which no African bank has achieved since its inception. The Bank’s re-election into the Board underpins its commitment to the protection of customer assets and information.
