The security and safety of our systems and users are our utmost priority at Fazz. Throughout 2023, Fazz has continued working closely with the Singapore Police Force CyberCrime Command (CCC) to detect and report any signs of cybercrime before they happen.
We are proud that the CCC has recognised our efforts as Fazz has once again received the Alliance of Public Private Cybercrime Stakeholders (APPACT) Appreciation Award for the seventh time!

Moving forward with our efforts against cybercrime, money laundering & fraud
Receiving the APPACT appreciation award will mean that Fazz will continue to enforce its three-pronged approach:
- Training & case-studies: The continuing effective training of our team members on anti-money laundering and detecting suspicious transactions, especially with the use of recent case studies in order to illustrate our policies and procedures.
- Evaluation & improvement of security and monitoring systems: The need for continuous improvement of our platform, and internal software systems for fraud and transactions monitoring.
- Pre-emptive approach to crime prevention: To stay ahead of criminals and fraud, we update ourselves with knowledge of the latest criminal trends and their modus operandi. With the Alliance of Public Private Cybercrime Stakeholders (APPACT) partnership, we have a quick and direct line of communicating with the police and more importantly, a direct line to other financial institutions that may be involved in the transaction.
