SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - September 15, 2016) - Registration remains open for Digital Identity Summit 2016, which will be the largest and most global event in company history. Global heads of Risk, Fraud and Security from companies with U.S. and global operations are convening at the sixth-annual Summit October 12-14 at the Terranea Resort and Spa in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
This year's Summit theme, Business Without Borders, examines the existing and arising vulnerabilities of running a digital business that transcends endpoint computing devices, the transformation to a digital-first customer channel, and realities of cross-border commerce. Fraud prevention and digital identity protection remain a top concern for eCommerce, financial institutions, banking and government entities. Day-in and day-out these businesses strive to safeguard customer information, protect against fraudulent activity and build comprehensive insight into the digital lifecycle of their business.
"The reality of running a cross-border digital business is that risk is magnified on a global scale. Cross-border commerce rejection rates hover at roughly five times that of domestic transactions and global businesses must plan accordingly," said Armen Najarian chief marketing officer of ThreatMetrix. "Digital Identity Summit 2016 is designed for sharing proven best practices and building a more powerful ecosystem that can thwart the evolving threats of fraudsters. By convening some of the sharpest security-minded professionals, attendees have the perfect opportunity to learn and apply best practices now to transform their 2017 digital business strategies."
Former Director of the National Security Agency and retired four-star U.S. Army Gen. Keith Alexander will give the keynote address "Addressing Cyber Threats in the International Environment" on Thursday, October 13. Mainstage sessions will reveal new digital identity strategies and research. Don't miss our women in technology panel "The Sophistication and Evolution of Fraud Prevention: Meet the Women on the Forefront of Digital Transformation."
To shine a spotlight on ThreatMetrix customers who are pushing the boundaries with digital identity, ThreatMetrix is launching the inaugural Digital Identity Excellence Awards. The winners, chosen by an independent group of media editors and industry analysts, will be honored the morning of Friday, October 14.
Attendees from throughout the Americas, EMEA, and Asia Pacific will have unprecedented access to an expansive network of thought leaders in the security industry who will speak from a vault of collective insights for reshaping cybersecurity and authentication in this digital age. And in what is sure to be a night to remember, there will be an evening gala aboard the historic ocean liner Queen Mary for a glamorous evening under a beautiful California sunset.
