Prolifics Offers CIOs a Chance to "Catch" Exclusive Special Event With Frank Abagnale -- Author and Subject of Hit Motion Picture "Catch Me If You Can"

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Prolifics, the largest end-to-end systems integrator specializing in IBM technologies, today announced its proud sponsorship of CIOsynergy's "An Evening with Frank Abagnale" on Thursday, December 17th at 6pm at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square.

Prolifics brings Frank Abagnale to New York City, whose life was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in Steven Spielberg's motion picture, "Catch Me If You Can," to share his life story with 150 CIOs during this epic evening. In addition, Abagnale will lead a discussion on the latest fraud techniques and technologies with an emphasis on the vulnerability of organizations and how they can detect, investigate, and prevent cybercrime.

Frank's rare blend of knowledge and expertise began more than 40 years ago when he was known as one of the world's most famous confidence men. As written in his biography and portrayed on screen -- between the ages of 16 and 21, he successfully posed as an airline pilot, an attorney, a college professor, and a pediatrician, in addition to cashing $2.5 million in fraudulent checks in every state and 26 countries. He was released on the condition that he would help the federal government, without remuneration, by teaching and assisting federal law enforcement agencies.

Tom Hanks, two-time Oscar winner and one of the stars of the motion picture, states, "Abagnale's lectures may be the best one man show you'll ever see." While the United States League of Savings Institutions raves, "He kept the audience laughing, crying, amazed, and terrified for a total of 60 minutes."
