Chicago  - May 5, 2009 

Accertify, a provider of leading-edge credit card fraud prevention solutions to airlines and other online merchants, will be featured as a speaker at the Airline Sales Channel Forum and A-La-Carte Pricing Conference to be held in Miami May on 11-13. 

Michael Long, Accertify’s Chief Product Strategist and an expert on e-commerce fraud in the airline industry, will discuss best practices in fraud-fighting during a panel discussion entitled "Payment Fraud Trends in the Airline Industry,” which will take place at a pre-conference workshop beginning at 4:45 p.m. on May 11. 

Fraudulent use of credit cards online is a key challenge costing the airline industry more than $1 billion annually in lost revenues.   The issue is a growing concern as fraudsters become more sophisticated and aggressive in their schemes, and because carriers rely on the Internet for a growing percentage of ticket sales.

Accertify's Interceptas solution is relied on by major airlines and has significantly reduced customer fraud losses.

Mr. Long is a frequent speaker on Internet fraud and has addressed the issues faced by carriers at a variety of global airline industry events organized by the International Air Transport Association, Airlines Reporting Corp., ATA and Computerized Airline Sales and Marketing Association. With nearly 20 years experience in accounting, fraud investigation and fraud prevention, he has deep experience combating card-not-present fraud in the travel industry. 

As Chief Product Strategist, Mr. Long is responsible for all of Accertify's product strategy and execution including customer support and consulting services.
