KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 31): Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) said allegations regarding a purported customer data leak by a third party are false.
In a statement on Saturday (Dec 31), the bank reassured its customers that their data remains secure and private, and that no customer data has been compromised.
“Maybank will continue to prioritise its cybersecurity and data protection measures, as customer data protection is of utmost importance to the bank,” it said.
