for Sponsors/Presentations About the APWG
The US Secret Service headquarters is a secure federal building
and the central administrative site for one of the most important
federal agencys tasked with pursuing financial crime
in the United States. As such, the Secret Service requires without
exception that each visitor to
its headquarters submit their Name, Date
of Birth and Social Security number in
advance of his or her visit to the H Street facility.
The APWG is working with the Secret Service to facilitate the most
secure method to collect, transmit and destroy those data once they
are used. For now please sign up though the member's site:
https://antiphishing.kavi.com/events/september_meeting. Please do
not send date of birth and social security numbers until the APWG
completes organizing a secure system for transfer of those data and
publishes announcements on the members' site requesting them.
