If you think of a hacker as a teenager with too much time on his hands, you’re missing the bigger picture. Bored geeks and petty thieves are an ongoing problem, but these days, the biggest threat comes from highly organised criminal enterprises that invest vast resources to perpetrate online.
Professional scammers target major websites that boast large customer databases. Businesses suffer losses in the billions of dollars, proving just how effective their tactics are. Financial organizations, social media outposts, and virtually any type of business are potential targets. As a business owner, protecting sensitive data on your website should be a top goal.
Marcus Evans is on the leading edge of fraud and scam prevention, presenting conferences that address the issues of online security, data protection, and privacy. The fact is, Internet security practices must change with the times – and the times are changing every single day.
By providing you with the information you need to protect your data, Marcus Evans helps you to gain the trust and loyalty of your clients.
Among the topics addressed at Marcus Evans conferences are:
- data loss prevention

If you’re a corporate leader responsible for compliance and ethics, legal or regulatory affairs, fraud and anti-corruption, international affairs, or risk management, a Marcus Evans event can help you do your job more effectively.
As Internet scams become more sophisticated and more difficult to detect, you can’t afford to let down your guard, even for a moment, especially when dealing with international matters.
