Highlighting the importance of a collaborative approach to fighting cybercrime, account takeover, payment fraud and identity spoofing, ThreatMetrix’s Third Annual Cybercrime Prevention Summit will take place at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, California.
Attendees will be coming from virtually every sector of the economy — financial institutions, e-commerce merchants, payment processors, government agencies, social networking companies and insurance providers. And they will be able to network and share ideas on collective cybercrime strategies with today’s leading cybersecurity experts. Plus, they can take part in a range of interactive training sessions.
“In today’s threat environment, no business can stand alone in the fight against cybercrime,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “Uniting thought leaders from a variety of industries provides attendees with the collective knowledge and tools they need to stay ahead of sophisticated cybercriminals.”
And attendees will get to hear some of the most knowledgeable speakers in cybersecurity today:

The theme “Strength in Numbers” echoes the idea behind the ThreatMetrix™ Global Trust Intelligence Network. Dubbed The Network for short, it’s the most comprehensive repository of information available anywhere for screening prior transactions and site visitors; and for authenticating customers and employees working remotely. Without compromising privacy or convenience, The Network provides threat data that offers insight into device and online personas’ positive and negative behavior. As such, it is the first and only real-time screen for online visitors using collaborative intelligence from thousands of websites and transactions.
“The Network offers superior transaction and persona screening capabilities that have not previously been available in the cybersecurity market,” said Rankin. “Attendees at this year’s Summit will learn more about this innovative trust intelligence network and walk away with insights to adjust to the ever-evolving threat environment.”
