Three Unforgettable Days in Chicago

iovation's Fraud Force Summit has been growing over the last 8 years, bringing more and more fraud and security experts from around the globe to connect, share, learn and of course, have a good time! 

Attendees will have the unique opportunity to learn about the world of cryptocurrencies and the impact they are having on businesses today; they will learn the importance of balancing Machine Learning and Human Intelligence and how to deploy, maintain and fine tune their defenses; they'll have a chance to go behind the scenes at iovation and learn about the data we see and the investigations we undertake; they will learn about the convergence of fraud and security teams and the increasing importance of working together to balance customer experience and security; attendees will also hear about Artificial Intelligence and why it's important in fraud prevention. 

One of the most impactful aspects of the summit is hearing first hand from iovation customers - how they spot and stop fraud rings, what data models they've built to uncover fraudulent behavior, what techniques they are deploying to beat fraudsters at their own game, and what unique tips and tricks they use in their daily fight against fraud.
