Fraud Prevention Seminar

Eddie Contreras, Senior Director, Fraud Prevention
Debi Kutaka, Senior Fraud Risk Manager
Silicon Valley Bank

While early-stage entrepreneurs take big risks, they often ignore the substantial risk of theft or loss when they can least afford it.

Why should you care? Small-to-medium enterprises are particularly vulnerable because they are much less likely to make fraud prevention or cyber security a priority. But consider the consequences: the Securities and Exchange Commission has estimated that half of the small businesses that suffer a cyber attack go out of business as a result.

This seminar will provide tips on how to protect your start-up from fraud. Don’t be scared; be vigilant.
