Innovative Sessions Focused on Thwarting Cybercrime and Limiting Fraud
Princeton, N.J. November 11, 2016
Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider to the information security community, held its annual London Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit on Nov. 9. ISMG will host its last ISMG Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit for the 2016 calendar year in Singapore Nov. 22 and also its annual GovInfoSec Asia Summit in New Delhi Dec. 1 and 2.
"Over the past several years our London Fraud & Breach Prevention Summit has become the go-to event for senior security professionals focused on advancing their education and knowledge in the field. With U.K.-based speakers from the government, regulatory bodies, practitioners and the vendor community, no other event in the region affords such targeted content for an executive security audience serious about fraud and data breach prevention,” said Mike D’Agostino, General Manager of ISMG.
“Our lineup of speakers and panelists for our London Summit was one of the best we’ve showcased at an event this year,” said Tracy Kitten, Content Director for the London Summit and Executive Editor, BankInfoSecurity and CUInfoSecurity. “We opened the day with a keynote presentation delivered by Jason Tunn, lead fraud and cybercrime investigator for the Metropolitan Police Service in London. Jason walked us through one of the most enlightening case studies of a high-profile cybercrime investigation I’ve ever seen – a tale of two British hackers with links to Russia who attacked leading U.K. banks and stole billions of dollars globally.”
Adds Kitten: “It’s these types of hands-on experiences and insights that our audiences want to hear, and as attendees shared with me after the event, it’s rare to be offered an opportunity to hear, first-hand, how law enforcement works with the community to bring cybercriminals down. This is one of the unique points of view we can offer to our audiences, and I look forward to even more of these types of sessions at our 2017 events.”
The Summit featured sessions and exhibits from a wide range of sponsors, including Arbor Networks, Fiserv and Proofpoint. In addition, Summit sponsor and presenter LogRhythm hosted an executive roundtable dinner that explored the challenges posed by insider threats, as well as best practices for detection and mitigation. Major U.K. financial institutions, accounting firms and other large organizations were present at this invitation-only event, hosted by ISMG Vice President of Editorial Tom Field.
ISMG recently announced its 2017 Summit schedule, which includes six North American Summits in Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago, New York and Toronto, with another seven events throughout the rest of the world, including Sydney, Dubai, London, Singapore, Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi.
