Edentify’s Tom Harkins to showcase advances in identity data analysis technology to National Operations, Security and Technology Conference
BETHLEHEM, Pa.–LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – Today Edentify, Inc. (OTC BB:EDFY), a leading provider of identity management solutions, announced that its Chief Operating Officer and former MasterCard International executive, Thomas J. Harkins, will engage in a panel discussion at the 2007 Bank Security Conference and Marketplace held by America’s Community Bankers (“ACB”) from April 22, 2007 to April 25, 2007, at the Hilton in the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Harkins’ presentation is scheduled for Monday, April 23, at 3:00 p.m.
Conducted in conjunction with ACB’s Bank Operations & Technology Conference and ACB’s Bank Sales and Marketing Conference, the event is designed to address hot topics for the bank security officer, and cover critical issues relating to physical and IT security. Topics range from “Protecting Your Bank During a Robbery or Hostage Crisis” to “Thwarting Online Frauds and Schemes.” This year, ACB will offer a new format —The Great Exchange—which encourages the exchange of ideas, the exchange of experiences and the exchange of best practices with other bank professionals during peer groups, topical sessions, networking breaks and receptions, and in the Marketplace, which features the latest products and services for financial institutions. Edentify will exhibit its identity manipulation detection technology at Booth #104.
Harkins, who is a veteran ACB conference speaker, will partake in a panel discussion called the Advanced Technology Corner, which will offer a comprehensive look at latest advancements in security technology, as well as convergence issues affecting the industry, tactics for protecting customers against the devastating effects of identity fraud, and the future of financial institution security. Prior to joining Edentify, Harkins spent almost two decades helping MasterCard’s high-profile corporate customers find and fight fraud, data theft, and other high security risks, and now leads Edentify’s business and product development efforts.
“Unfortunately, identity fraud is a growing reality of today’s society, and unless we empower the financial services industry with the necessary tools and education to fight fraud, we’re never going to win this up-hill battle,” says Harkins. “Participating in this panel discussion is a tremendous opportunity for me to not only address the identity fraud-related issues plaguing the financial industry, but also bring greater visibility to some of the available technologies, such as Edentify’s solutions, that can help the financial industry protect consumers and minimize the damage this crime can create.”
Edentify, Inc. (“Edentify”) was formed in August 2004 with the objective of becoming the leading organization in the field of developing and deploying data analysis technology solutions for preventing identity theft and fraud. It is currently a later-stage development company and expects shortly to begin a period of increased growth. Edentify will seek to fulfill its goals by analyzing the means by which identity crimes are perpetrated and through the development of new technologies and procedures to assist corporations, the government and consumers in the fight against identity fraud and related crime.
