Held on the Sidelines of the RSA Conference in San Francisco, the
Event Is Designed to Address Unique Fraud and Authentication Challenges
Faced by Financial Institutions in Latin America, Spain and Portugal
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The LATAM-Iberian
Fraud Forum announces its annual conference, which will take place
alongside the RSA Conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
The Forum’s primary objective is to assemble a group of fraud
prevention and authentication experts for an intimate, half-day
discussion dedicated to disseminating knowledge on effective ways
to combat financial fraud in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
Latin America is experiencing some of the fastest growth in Internet
adoption worldwide and, as such, becoming increasingly vulnerable to
cybercrime. The Iberian region is facing similar vulnerabilities, with
Portugal recently reported
to have the third-highest number of cybercrime victims in the European
Union. Attacks in both geographies are characterized by high rates of
ATM fraud, phishing and overlay malware. These similarities are why
experts in Latin America and Iberia must collaborate – sharing
information and developing initiatives to identify and address the
proliferation of attacks.
This year’s event will feature a roster of distinguished speakers that
cut across the industry spectrum, from leading regional banks, analyst
firms and technology leaders. The agenda includes presentations from
Michael Fox, Group CIO of Falabella; Guillermo Kopp, Worldwide Financial
Services Industry Director at Microsoft; Uri Rivner, Chief Cyber Officer
at BioCatch and many more.
Attendees must be approved by the steering committee in order to attend;
a short application form is available on the event
website. Eligible participants manage the following disciplines in
their respective financial services organizations: fraud prevention,
compliance, KYC/identity proofing, authentication, digital banking and
The event is also supported by various corporate partners, including BioCatch,
Security and Telefonica,
all of which have active clients in the regions and will be able to
provide their first-hand experience and subject matter expertise in
helping to resolve some of the most challenging issues facing Latin
American and Iberian banks today.
To encourage open discussion, the LATAM-Iberian Fraud Forum will be held
under Chatham House rules and will be closed to the press.
