What is the safest bank to apply for a Credit Card?

I want to apply for a credit card because of its convenience, however owning a credit card has its pros and cons. Since this is my first time applying for a credit card, I fear that someone might try to take advantage of it in case I lose my credit card. I want to find out which bank would offer me the best security in case this happens.

It is also worth noting that DBS is currently offering an even lower rate for the purchase of used cars (1.99% p.a.) in a promotion.
