Third Annual Summit Will Unite Industry Leaders, Highlighting the Importance of a Collaborative Approach to Cybersecurity
San Jose, CA – April 18, 2013 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced the 2013 ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Prevention Summit, themed “Strength in Numbers.” The third annual conference will take place September 11-13 at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, Calif.
The ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Prevention Summit is the largest of its kind, featuring industry-leading guest speakers and presentations. Aligning with President Obama’s recent Cybersecurity Executive Order, which called on the private sector to share information on cyberattacks, the summit will encourage collaboration on the topics of cybercrime, account takeover, fraudulent new registration and identity theft.
“No one can prevent cybercrime alone – it takes a collective effort,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “By joining with peers and industry leaders to collaborate, summit attendees will take away valuable insights and best practices that they can apply to their organizations’ cybersecurity strategies. We know that cybercriminals effectively share information to commit crimes – we need to do the same to stop them.”
The conference will connect professionals from financial institutions, e-commerce merchants, payment processors, government agencies, social networking companies and insurance providers, among other organizations. The conference will also offer attendees a chance to network and collaborate over local activities such as fly fishing, mountain biking and kayaking on Lake Tahoe.
“We recognize that some of the best information exchanges with industry thought leaders happen outside of the conference room. To facilitate these conversations, the Summit will encourage attendees to engage in activities unique to Squaw Valley and its spectacular mountain environment,” Rankin said. “By the end of the conference, we are confident each attendee will take away insights that will help them adjust to the ever-changing threat environment.”
