The objective of the International Fraud Prevention Conference is to build a community with the common goal of fighting fraud in all its manifestations.
The convention is a space featuring cutting edge content where you will hear from and meet top international speakers and panellists. Just as importantly IFPC2020 is one of Europe's major business networking events where senior executives and decision makers can meet and discuss mutual issues and interests. You will hear about the latest threats, innovations and solutions in the fraud prevention world.
Many of you live and breathe cyber - whether in tech, financial services, government, law enforcement or utilities - and preventing and confronting a breach is your business. At IFPC2020 you will have the opportunity to network with other like-minded industry leaders and build new connections.
Cyber is our main theme again in 2020. In January we read about how Travelex was reduced to using pen and paper to record transactions because of a ransomware attack where the cyber criminals were demanding $3M. Also in January a major US company was forced to go to Dublin's High Court after being blackmailed by hackers seeking $6M. It has been an inauspicious start to 2020 but it has clearly put Cyber Security measures centre stage.
We will also be discussing your company's AML and ABAC measures as well as the well known requirement for consistent Reputation Management stress testing.
We are in the business of connecting people and I am glad to report that again this year we have a very high calibre of speakers, with more international experts being added every week.
Our main moderator will be my co-director, the broadcaster and author Paul Williams. I would also like to thank one of Ireland's early anti-fraud pioneers, co-director James Treacy of Stubbs Gazette for his drive in helping organise IFPC2020.
Cyber and fraud prevention are complex issues that are easier to prevent and control when we work together. The connections you make at this conference, whether you are Big Tech, a major financial institution, a start up or in law enforcement will help your preparedness, ability to innovate and introduce the most advanced cyber tech measures.
If you would like to exhibit or sponsor please reach out to my colleague, James Treacy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Earlier I mentioned the importance of having a strong industry B2B networking convention. Of course there is nowhere better than the city of Dublin for such a platform. The capital of Ireland is home to the European headquarters of many of the world's largest tech companies. Ireland itself is home to more than 30pc of all EU data with more than 6,500 people employed in the cyber security sector alone. As our Irish delegates and those who have visited before will tell you, Dublin is also the European Headquarters of Networking!
Here's to a great convention and good business opportunities.
I look forward to welcoming you to Croke Park on March 11 next.

The crypto assets were confiscated from two brothers in the Belgian city of Antwerp who had been trading drugs on the Darknet. The latter is known to be a marketplace where goods ranging from legal and illegal items are sold. It has the characteristics of providing anonymity and the promise to find just about anything which has attracted its userbase.
We will look into the challenges and how they were overcome with inputs from COSC Director Jean-Michel Verelst and Aidan Larkin, Asset Recovery Director, Wilsons Auctions.
