PORTLAND, OR and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2016) - iovation, the provider of device intelligence for authentication and fraud prevention, today announced that it is hosting its London Gambling User Group on Feb. 1, 2016. The user group provides a platform for online gambling operators to collaborate in-person, discuss fraud prevention strategies and hear from industry experts about how they can reduce friction for loyal customers. It is being held a day before the London ICE Totally Gaming conference, the world's largest international gambling business event.

"The United Kingdom's $7 billion online gambling industry is rife with ways that cybercriminals are looking to commit fraud, from colluding in money laundering to hijacking trusted accounts," said iovation's Vice President of Product Scott Olson. "It is imperative that operators find ways to reduce fraud while at the same time elevate customer satisfaction."

The iovation London Gambling User Group is available to iovation customers. At the event, iovation's Director of Client Services, Melissa Gaddis, will lead a discussion about calculating a return on investment for anti-fraud solutions. "Understanding the costs included in a ROI calculation, and the importance placed on reduced fraud losses verses increased revenue is very important," says Gaddis. "We'll discuss uplift components including fraudulent accounts identified through device intelligence, transactions prevented from returning abusers, review costs reduced by stopping repeat offenders and technology infrastructure investments minimized with third-party vendors."
