LAS VEGAS – The Commercial Alliance Las Vegas (CALV) will feature a presentation on cyber security by fraud prevention expert Frank Abagnale of “Catch Me If You Can” fame as part of its annual educational symposium on Sept. 21.
CALV is hosting its 15th annual symposium for real estate professionals and others from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 21 at the Orleans Hotel & Casino. CALV is presenting the day-long event in conjunction with the local chapter of SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office Realtors®) and the Southern Nevada CCIM Chapter. Participants can earn three hours of continuing education credits.
Abagnale is scheduled to speak at 9 a.m. about “Cyber Security: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.” The best-selling author of several books, he is best known as the inspiration for the main character in the hit movie “Catch Me If You Can.” After going from con man to consultant, his perspective and counsel have guided not only the FBI, but more than half of all the Fortune 500 companies in America.
The symposium will also include a breakfast, luncheon and other presentations and panel discussions by local experts on fraud prevention and cyber security.
CALV President Angelina Scarcelli, a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and Certified Property Manager (CPM®), said CALV is “looking forward to bringing commercial real estate professionals and others together for what we hope will be our biggest CALV symposium yet. Cyber security is a very important and timely topic and Frank Abagnale is a leading expert and a very entertaining speaker on the subject.”
