The seminar aimed at enhancing the practitioners' awareness of preventing online fraud and raising their alertness to cyber security.
About 150 participants, including representatives of the Central and Western District Fight Crime Committee, over 20 chambers of commerce and small and medium-sized enterprises, attended the seminar.
