Photo: Panel Discussion at LFPA Spring Event 2018 - Miami

Overview: This event of the Loyalty Fraud Prevention Association (LFPA) focused on digital strategies to get ahead of the threats in terms of Loyalty Fraud. Understanding the Fraudster's Customer Journey helps you to work better with the other departments like IT and Call Centres to stop fraud. In turn, this engages your customers to help them help themselves against fraud. On top of discussing these issues and other trends in loyalty fraud prevention, attendees were also able to meet and network with industry peers and best practice service providers to hear first-hand how to further protect a loyalty program.

Its agenda may be found below. Conference Presentations will be available shortly for downloading.
