“Tomorrow is safer internet day and for us, at FNB Namibia, safety is at the forefront when it comes to using the internet or any digital channels, in order to protect our customers’ cash,” says Elzita Beukes, Communications Manager at the bank. 

The internet has been part and parcel of our lives for almost 50 years as it officially began its life cycle in 1969, when scientists working for the US Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA, now known as DARPA) connected computer networks at the University of California and the Stanford Research Institute. Since then the advancement of this creation has come a long way, adding electronic banking to it as well as numerous digital channels and social media.
