2 posts in this topic

Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA) is the Premier International Association for revenue assurance, loss prevention and fraud control through education and information. Internationally recognized for its unique educational conferences and intelligence-sharing opportunities, CFCA will hold its Nineteenth Annual Meeting and Conference and Eleventh Annual Exhibition, June 8-11, 2004 at the Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel, San Francisco, California.

Communications fraud and subsequent widespread revenue loss is a global problem of monumental and largely unappreciated proportions. Worldwide losses from telecom fraud soared to $35-40 billion (US) according to CFCA's 2003 Fraud Loss Executive Summary.

Proliferating new communications technologies make managing fraud, risk and revenue assurance more important than ever. Implementing the latest detection, protection and prevention developments in each area is essential to meet challenges from imaginative, dedicated criminals and terrorists.

Optional tutorial programs for attendees include: Telephony Fraud-Wireline, Wireless and PBX/PABX; Introduction to Wireless Principals, Voice over IP-and Potential Fraud Implications and How to Build a Criminal Case. Highlights of the three-and-a-half-day program include:

§        Fraud in emerging technologies                           

§        Wireless security and Next Generation Networks     

§        IT and the Financial Impact

§        Identifying possible bad debt customers

§        Linking fraud and revenue assurance

§        Legal Issues Update

§        Signaling-an important part of fraud management

§        The Innovation of Hacking a PBX/PABX

§        Identifying/quantifying fraud losses and savings

Since 1985, CFCA has increased carriers' and customers' awareness of revenue loss prevention and fraud control options through conferences, fraud alerts to members and publications. The communication industry has experienced rapid changes in the types of fraud, types of criminals, and unexpected challenges accompanying each new communications technology.

CFCA's objective is to meet industry demand for information and networking opportunities. Communications security professionals presenting material will represent: Arizona Attorney General's Office, AT&T, Bahamas Telecommunications, BellSouth Carrier Professional Services, Booz Allen & Hamilton, Fair Isaac, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Hewlett-Packard, Neural Technologies, Retail Decisions, SBC Laboratories, SNET Diversified Group, Tekelec, TeleDesign Security, TelePacific Communications, United States Secret Service and Verizon Communications.

thanks for the heads up!

i'd love to go to this, but probably cannot (money, time, distance, etc.). it would be interesting to get somebody from these forums to go that maybe lives on the west coast that could tape a lot of the talks that will be going on there. maybe some SE to grab up some copies of the powerpoint presentations given. i'd be willing to help out with the entrance fee if somebody could do some recon and get some good info. this all, of course, would be used purely for information gathering purposes. knowledge is power.
