Former White House CIO to Keynote iovation's 5th Annual Fraud Force Summit

iovation Opens Registration for Its User Conference That Enables the In-Person Exchange of Cyberthreat Intelligence

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2016) - iovation, the provider of device intelligence for authentication and fraud prevention, today announced that former White House CIO Theresa Payton will keynote the company's 5th annual user conference, the Fraud Force Summit.

"We are at an important crossroads when it comes to fighting online fraud," said Payton. "The number of breaches continues to rise meaning fraudsters have more information than ever that they need to carry out their schemes. However, we can't continue to build walls to fight fraud. We need the right combination of customer authentication and fraud prevention to stop the bad guys while identifying and creating a streamlined experience for trusted customers."

Registration just opened for the Fraud Force Summit which runs September 19-21 in Portland, Oregon. To accommodate the hundreds of people taking part in breakout sessions, tech talks, workshops, customer spotlights, partner presentations and more, iovation has moved the summit to a larger venue -- the Portland Armory, Center Stage. The summit provides an in-person closed-door opportunity for executives, and anti-fraud and cybersecurity professionals to exchange intelligence about the latest global cyberthreats and evasion techniques, and solutions to uncover and fight them.

"Every second matters when it comes to both fighting fraud and providing your online customers the most frictionless experience possible," said Molly O'Hearn at iovation. "During this year's summit, we are going to concentrate on fast forwarding the fraud fight and user experience through authentication -- staying steps ahead of the fraudsters and anticipating your customers' needs before they even know them."

Fraud Force attendees include Fortune 500 executives and world-renowned anti-fraud professionals in the finance, insurance, retail, social media, travel, ticketing, telecommunications and gaming industries. It costs $495 to attend the summit and early bird registrants receive a discounted price of $295 before June 30. For more details and to register, go to fraudforcesummit.com.
