Houston Virtual Fraud Conference Series

Description: As with many things this year, we are having to adapt our training events to meet our members' needs. In order to be able to provide you with the same high quality training in a virtual format, we have decided to provide 5 days worth of training over what would normally be the week of our fraud conference. So what does that look like? Well, check this out!

Each day will have its own registration, so pick one or pick all! This gives you the flexibility to attend the days you want without paying for the days you don't.

To register for the entire series, register using the registration on this page!
