World-renowned cybersecurity expert and fraud prevention specialist, Frank Abagnale, will emphasise the importance of safeguarding players in today’s ever-increasing fraudulent landscape, and reveal how simple strategies can thwart today’s cyber criminals, in his keynote speech at SBC Summit North America.

The best-selling author and the inspiration behind Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated movie, Catch Me If You Can, will reflect on his experiences to educate attendees on how identity thieves work and why passwords alone won’t keep the players safe.

His Catch Me If You Can: Cybercrime, Identity Theft and Scams keynote will be a key feature of the Converging Worlds conference track on Thursday May 11th.

Over the past four decades, Frank’s fraud prevention programs have been adopted by over 14,000 financial institutions, corporations and law enforcement agencies. He has also served as an associate of the FBI. He is a well-known author with multiple best-sellers, including The Art of the Steal, The Real U Guide to Identity Theft, Stealing Your Life and his most recent, Scam Me If You Can – Simple Strategies to Outsmart Today’s Rip-off Artists.

He spent 10 years as an advisor to the 41st Parameter, a developer of fraud detection that is now used in over 80 countries. And today, he works as an advisor to cyber security company, Trusona, which offers a passkey-as-a-service platform to help businesses add passkeys to their websites.

Trusona is exhibiting at SBC Summit North America, introducing Trusona Authentication Cloud, showing how it improves long-term customer value with faster, phishing-resistant sign-ups and sign-ins using a tap-and-go experience.

Rasmus Sojmark, Founder & CEO of SBC, says: “Frank has a phenomenal wealth of knowledge around the subject of cybersecurity, fraud and identity theft that transcends any industry. What will make his keynote especially memorable is that it will be equally informative and entertaining with his fascinating anecdotes. I mean we have all seen Catch Me if You Can, right?”

Frank Abagnale adds: “With methods of forgery, embezzlement and cybercrime becoming increasingly more advanced, the need for accessible and innovative cybersecurity tactics has never been more crucial. I have consulted on almost every major breach in the US over the last 40 years and it is incredible how many were down to stolen data or weak passwords.

“I look forward to sharing actionable tips based on my own experience that can help businesses avoid common downfalls.”
