Join MPI Ottawa in recognition of Global Meetings Industry Day! We are going to have an amazing program on event security with a special focus on the impact of cyber-crime, credit card fraud, room pirates and physical security. What can you do to protect your organization, your attendees and yourself? The first step is to find out about the threats you might be completely unaware of.
Chris Mathers will explain exactly who the bad guys are, what they’re trying to do, and how you can protect your organization and your event. Mathers retired after a 20-year career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. At the time of his retirement, he was the senior undercover operator at the RCMP Proceeds of Crime Section where he established and operated a number of “storefront” money laundering businesses in Canada and the US, targeting Colombian, Russian, and Asian crime groups. Mathers personally infiltrated criminal organizations in North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe. A popular media commentator and speaker, Mathers has served as a consultant on several feature films and documentaries relating to organized crime, espionage and money laundering.
