Training on Cyber Security and Fraud Prevention for Banks
The Bank of Tanzania Act, 2006 and the Banking and Financial Institutions Act, 2006 mandate Bank of Tanzania to license, regulate and supervise banking institutions in Tanzania. As a regulator, the Bank of Tanzania is entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring stable, sound and safe banking sector and the financial system at large.
