The CAL Bank is now ISO 27001-certified after successfully going through the necessary process to obtain the certification.

The bank was presented with the certificate in Accra last Friday.

The Managing Director of the bank, Mr Frank Adu Jnr, said the certification had come at a time when the banking sector was witnessing some major transformation.

As a result, he said there was the need for standards and security of customer’s incomes.

He said the bank was ready to improve effectiveness in its delivery of services and thus assured customers that CAL Bank was working to make them comfortable.

“We are in business to ensure value for money for our clients irrespective of the amount of income they invest into the bank,” he stated.

Zero incidences

He said he was excited that the bank achieved this stride with a zero conformity mark.

He attributed the feat to the outstanding performance from the board, management and staff of the bank and thus commended the team that ensured that the bank achieved this standard.

Prudence

The Chief Executive Officer of Digital Jewels, Mrs Adedoyin Odunfa, who presented the certificate to the bank, said the CAL Bank’s achievement of the ISO 27001 certification came as a result of the prudent, effective and reliable banking system that it operates.

She said the CAL Bank had continuously worked with the needed and laid down procedures from the Bank of Ghana and that had enhanced the bank’s security systems and also ensured that the technology environment, data and information systems were secured.

Mrs Odunfa observed that the CAL Bank had positioned itself strategically to effectively do business with customers with an integrity of safe banking, confidence and reliability.

She further commended the bank for the hard work, dedication to standards and giving no chance for mediocrity. This, she mentioned, should be the guiding tool of the bank in the ensuing years as the competition would be very keen.

She, therefore, urged management to ensure that staff of the bank are provided with rigorous training with new trends in the banking sector to maintain a high standard, improve the quality of human resource base and create a platform for judicious and better banking service.
