The annual conference, which will host over 250 delegates at will provide a rallying ground for the industry crème de la crème to focus on how to mitigate fraud-the industry’s most pressing challenge. Globally, cybercriminals rake in at least $1.5 trillion every year, which means more than $1m (N305,750,000) is lost every minute to cybercrime, this is according to a research by Michael McGuire, senior lecturer in criminology at Surrey University.
