CELAES 2010 it is a unique forum to meet, discuss, learn and keep in touch with what is going on in the banking security sector such as Physical Security, Operational and IT Security and Fraud as a Security Risk. This year's Conference program has been built by some of the world’s most recognized entities featuring leading specialists from banking operations, security, fraud detection units, and information technology who come to share knowledge and discuss the issues that are at the top of Banking Security’s agenda. CELAES 2010 attracts year after year hundreds of participants ranging from financial institutions across the hemisphere, as well as the companies that offer cutting-edge solutions.
Business continuity and disaster management will also be an important component of the agenda. There will be a special presentation on the recent earthquake and subsequent tsunami that impacted South-Central regions in Chile on 27 February of this year, and how this affected the financial system.
“The Conference could not be more timely,” said FIBA’s Executive Director Patricia Roth. “In years past, the main threats to banks were physical security and bank robberies. Today, we have to address business continuity, an increase in credit and debit card fraud, transnational organized crime, and identity theft,” Roth emphasized. The CELAES 2010 conference will address all these issues.
