Special Guest Speaker: Frank Abagnale (Catch Me If You Can)

The Coalition is proud to be celebrating our 40th anniversary, and to mark this milestone, we wanted to put a little different twist on our Excellence in Partnership Awards Dinner this year.  We are excited to announce that our guest speaker for the evening will be Frank Abagnale, one of the world’s top fraud prevention experts. The Catch Me If You Can author will share his critical lessons from the world of security, helping business and government organizations stay a step ahead of the criminals.  His transformation from one of the world’s most notorious con men to an international security expert trusted by the FBI has been mythologized in film and literature, but Mr. Abagnale’s contributions to the world of security are immeasurable. He has become a hero to hundreds of public and private sector organizations for his indispensable counsel and strategic insight on safeguarding information systems and combating fraud.  Click here to register for the EIPs Dinner with an early bird discount through October 18th!
