"We're very excited to host this event for our clients," said iovation CEO and Founder, Greg Pierson. "It's a great chance for them to meet face-to-face. These amazing professionals are part of our global community and have shared 17 million fraud and abusive events across our network." iovation has the largest database of fraud evidence that provides real-time insights about the risk a computer or mobile device poses when it connects to a client's site.

"While iovation operates in many different industries, our issues and goals are the same. We want to stop the bad guys without causing unnecessary friction for our good customers," said Global Payments Manager, Katie Castro of online staffing platform Elance. "Meeting others at the Fraud Force Summit has provided me invaluable insight and shown me that the industry labels do not apply. Fraud is fraud and it's a burden on all of us. Let's utilize our network to stop it together."
The upcoming event will focus on trends in global fraud and cybercrime prevention, and provide networking activities in pristine Oregon forests and the foodie paradise that is Portland.
"Not all crime fighters wear a badge. At the Fraud Force Summit, I was able to connect with a diverse group of fraud managers, analysts, and enthusiasts who fight daily to eliminate fraud and abuse from cybercriminals," said Senior BI Developer, Phoenix Clarke of payments provider Rev Worldwide. "We shared tips on how to get the most out of iovation, opened the doors of communication across industries, and learned of upcoming functionality. It was an amazing experience."
"Our clients will once again have the opportunity to collaborate and share best practices at our annual summit. The in-person conversations that take place in between formal sessions, over meals and during social events are extremely valuable, and those relationships continue to grow throughout the year within our online Fraud Force Community," said Pierson.
