It is often said that crucial to a good fraud prevention strategy is the ability to communicate, share knowledge and network in order to evaluate trends and determine either an industry approach, if possible, or evaluate solutions.

The IATA Global Fraud Prevention Event aims to bring together global airlines, travel agents and OTAs, card schemes, IATA Strategic Partners and service providers, police authorities and law enforcement agencies from all regions of the world.

The two days event will combine keynote sessions with open forums, presentations and debates enabling participants to engage, network and discuss about the latest global fraud payment trends and industry payment projects that will impact the way fraud prevention is done today.
