5th Annual Summit Has Experts from Around the World Discussing Collaborative Strategies to Fight Evolving Cybercrime
Themed “Connect and Collaborate,” the ThreatMetrix® Cybercrime Prevention Summit 2015, the largest of its kind, will bring together 250 cybersecurity experts from around the globe to exchange ideas on the latest trends in cybersecurity, shared intelligence, protection against mobile fraud and improvement of online trust and Internet security. The fifth annual Summit runs from October 7-9 at the Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa, the heart of California wine country.
2014: breaches happening at unprecedented rate
There were major breaches in almost every sector — healthcare, financial services, retail, government, military and other industries. The Identity Theft Resource Center tracked a record 780 plus breaches – a 27.5 percent increase over the number of breaches reported in 2013. Faced with this ongoing assault, the summit will focus on how businesses and consumers can leverage a collective approach to cybersecurity.

Bert Rankin, ThreatMetrix chief marketing officer, on the best way to combat fraud
“The fallout from a record high in data breaches last year has made it challenging for businesses to protect their employees and customers from fraud on various levels. The best way to combat fraud in the wake of these breaches is to bring together all aspects of customers’ and employees’ online devices and behaviors into one unique digital identity. By connecting with experts and peers, summit attendees will hear specific insights on the most recent cyber attacks identified through the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network and the best practices being used to deter them.”
