17th Annual Educational Fraud Management Event Set For November

Equinox To Host Protector User Group Meeting In Nashville

Nashville, TN October 29, 2015 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today reported plans to host their annual Protector User Group Meeting (UGM) next month in Nashville, TN. This event, which runs from November 16-18, is designed especially for the company's fraud management customers. Equinox has been hosting this educational event annually since 1999. Event attendance has historically increased each year since it became a tradition, with the majority of participants returning in subsequent years based on the educational and networking benefits of the event. This year's meeting is slated to break record attendance levels, with registration already up over 50% from the 2014 event.

This meeting is paramount to Equinox's mission to help telecom carriers protect and optimize their revenue when it comes to fraud management. The event not only delves into the hot fraud topics of the day, but it is also custom tailored to the company's current fraud management customers who are in attendance. Constructing the event to address both aspects results in maximum benefit for everyone involved. It also lets Equinox really dig into the issues faced by those in the daily fight against fraud.

To that end, the meeting boasts multiple carrier-led case studies about life in the fraud trenches, along with a popular product enhancement crowdsourcing session and group discussion of fraud trends and investigation practices. The Equinox team facilitates several sessions, including a preconference training workshop targeted at maximizing fraud mitigation efforts, as well as a tour of the latest system features. The User Group Meeting also allows attendees to earn educational credits to qualify for CFCA's Certified Communications Security Professional (CCSP) designation if they are a CFCA member. As always, the meeting affords a wealth of networking opportunities with industry fraud experts as well as the entire Customer Support team, who continues to handle all customer accounts personally.

"I always look forward to the Protector User Group Meeting but am especially excited about this year," explained Equinox's Implementation and Training Manager, Christi Vanoye. "We have registrants from every cross section of the industry-cable, wholesale, ILEC, CLEC, VoIP-from companies of all sizes, representing the full range of fraud management strategies and experiences. As a result, the agenda boasts an extremely wide variety of customer-led presentations as well as group discussions on topics like robocalling, SIP monitoring, and other advancements in the fraud arena."

Protector, the most installed fraud management system in the U.S., is used by Equinox customers to process hundreds of millions of call records per day. The automated FMS provides real-time fraud protection by monitoring records for events outside of acceptable usage thresholds. When such events are detected, Protector immediately alerts, so fraud can be stopped right then at the source. Because Protector employs dynamic usage profiling and proprietary monitoring metrics (rather than hardcoding for specific fraud types/symptoms) to identify suspicious activity, it detects all types of fraud-even the newest schemes-across all customer bases and call types. Protector has well earned its reputation as the industry's most reliable and affordable tool for combatting telecommunications fraud and by saving carriers hundreds of millions of dollars in fraud losses.
