The Education Conference at the CNP Expo offers more merchant speakers and counter-fraud transparency than any other industry gathering. More than 50 hours of education will be presented in a variety of formats including merchant panels, case studies, expert analysis, best practices, research announcements and industry keynotes. A limited number of merchant-only sessions will be held to offer full transparency in a secure, controlled setting. Education speakers include nearly 100 industry experts including professionals from Google, ThreatMetrix, Discover Global Network, GameStop, Etsy, Integrity, Yahoo, Staples, Viator/Trip Advisor, HSN, LEGO, Amazon, Western Union Digital, Sony Playstation, Pinterest, Victoria’s Secret and more.
