Posted April 30, 2015
The Summit Brings Together Industry Experts to Discuss Collaborative Strategies
for Businesses and Consumers to Combat Evolving Cybercrime Threats
San Jose, CA – April 30, 2015 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced the ThreatMetrix® Cybercrime Prevention Summit 2015, themed “Connect and Collaborate.” The fifth annual summit will take place October 7-9 at the Silverado Resort & Spa, Napa, Calif.
The ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Prevention Summit 2015 is the largest of its kind, bringing together 250 cybersecurity experts from around the globe to “Connect and Collaborate” on the latest trends in cybersecurity, shared intelligence, protection against mobile fraud and improvement of online trust and Internet security.
During 2014 major breaches in healthcare, financial services, retail, government, military and other industries continued to increase. The Identity Theft Resource Center tracked a record high number of data breaches in 2014, with more than 780 breaches – a 27.5 percent increase over the number of breaches reported in 2013. Faced with the continued escalation in online attacks, the summit will focus on how businesses and consumers can leverage a collective approach to cybersecurity. A collaborative approach to cybercrime prevention will become even more important as cybercriminals have access to even more ways to easily commit fraud than ever before.
The ThreatMetrix® Digital Identity Network, the world’s largest trusted identity network, which is currently processing more than one billion online transactions each month, enabling ThreatMetrix customers across industries to access the most comprehensive world-wide data and analysis available to combat cybercrime.
“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,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “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.”
The conference will connect industry experts, technologists and other fraud prevention and cybersecurity practitioners to connect and collaborate in an informal environment. During the summit, attendees will have the chance to make direct, meaningful connections through various activities to better understand the most recent cyber threats and take their company’s best practices to the next level.
The information and experiences at the ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Prevention Summit are valuable for anyone interested in finding ways to reduce online payment fraud, account takeover, identity spoofing and other forms of cybercrime.
