LEXINGTON, Ky. — Central Bank Chairman, President & CEO Luther Deaton, has announced that Shane Ensminger, Director of the Central Bank Fraud Intelligence and Security Unit, will lead the KBA’s new Fraud Academy, which will be offered to Kentucky banks.
Central Bank’s Shane Ensminger, in conjunction with the KBA, will be facilitating a first-of-its-kind school focused on combating fraud. Shane began offering this program to Central Bank employees in 2019 but saw the need to offer the course on broader scale to other Kentucky banks. The KBA Fraud Academy will train bank employees at all levels on fraud risk and what they can do to fight it. The program will feature speakers from the United States Secret Service, attorneys from the United States for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Lexington Police Department, and other current and former law enforcement experts that will share their experiences and insights to best educate bankers on how to mitigate fraud risk and ultimately reduce fraud loss.
“Fraud is rampant, but we’ve proven through this program more can be done to help prevent it,” stated Shane Ensminger, “This program goes beyond the level of education required by regulations, and we do a deep dive into fraud detection and prevention. Our goal is for graduates to walk away with knowledge they can truly put to use and that they can share with others at their bank.”
