Alaric Signs As Business Development Partner for Hi-Tech Financial Crimes & Fraud Event

Alaric International, a leading supplier of advanced technology and fraud detection solutions for the card payments industry, today announced that it will be the Business Development Partner at Hi-Tech Financial Crimes & Fraud, a key conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on June 14th - 15th 2007. This is the first time that Alaric has taken a role such as this at a major anti-fraud event and it is a reflection of its growing focus on the Asia Pacific region.

Hi-Tech Financial Crimes & Fraud is an event that provides an in-depth analysis of all aspects of financial crimes and the risks open to financial institutions. Key topics that will be covered this year include identity theft, fraudster profiling and online payment fraud. The programme will also include a strong focus on the hi-tech techniques employed by the criminal gangs, an examination of emerging wireless technologies and online banking, and will provide expert advice on the measures which need to be set in place to keep networks secure.

"This event is a serious examination of both fraud and its causes in the Asia Pacific market," said Steve Lomax, director of sales and marketing at Alaric. "With our extensive experience in helping financial institutions tackle both internal and external fraud threats, Alaric is a natural partner for this event and we are looking forward to making a very positive contribution to this important conference."

In the last quarter of last year Alaric expanded its global distribution network with emphasis on the Asia Pacific markets, with the opening of its Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Melbourne, Australia.
