[PRESSWIRE] BOISE, Idaho, April 20, 2017 -- Kount, a leading innovator of solutions for fraud and risk management, today announced it will expand the Fraud360 World Tour, its popular fraud prevention seminar series, to include hosting an event in Israel.
Following popular demand of the series due to continued increase in online and mobile fraud rates, Kount will present a seminar in Tel Aviv on Wednesday May 3rd, bringing the series to the Middle East for the first time.
Sponsored by Kount, BlueSnap, CardNotPresent.com, and WhitepagesPro, Fraud360 originally launched in North America in 2014 and has since expanded steadily throughout the globe, now reaching Asia, Australia, and Europe. The tour has attracted thousands of professionals interested in learning more about fraud trends, payments acceptance, and best practices for fraud prevention. In addition to numerous requests from the region, Kount cites Tel Aviv's burgeoning technology, security, and eCommerce community as another key reason to host a Fraud360 seminar there.
"Tel Aviv has become a fast-growing tech hub and global marketplace for eCommerce, and companies in the region realize how important it is to stay ahead of fraud to protect their bottom line," said Brad Wiskirchen, CEO, Kount. "Fraud and payments are global issues that evolve and affect regions and businesses in different ways. Professionals across a variety of industries find value in hearing directly from experts who can equip them with the latest trends and solutions to stay steps ahead of fraud."
"Learning how to use APIs, BI, and AI to increase sales is a no brainer in today's competitive landscape. We're excited to share how these innovative tools can optimize payments and fraud to help your eCommerce business grow," said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO BlueSnap
