Keynote Speakers – Scott F. Butler CFE CAMS

 A Chief Compliance Officer who has success in guiding companies through the process of obtaining money transmitter licenses worldwide.

Scott designed the compliance program for Facebook’s peer-to-peer (P2P) money transfer feature (“Payments on Messenger”) and established Facebook’s first company-wide system for monitoring developments in sanctions regimes that affect products/features across the Facebook platform. He handled key aspects of the Facebook payments subsidiary’s first-ever regulatory examinations before eventually taking full responsibility for those exams. At Linden Lab, he is charged with making sure that transactions that take place in a “virtual world” meet regulatory and legal requirements without inhibiting customer experience.

I’ve found that my experience working for compliance departments on Wall Street (Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse) provided regulators and business partners with the comfort that the AML/CTF programs that I established were fundamentally sound. Applying my traditional regulatory knowledge to the non-traditional FinTech environments has been my speciality.

He is also a screenwriter and have consulted on a number of financial crime/fraud-related film projects.

 Karisse Hendrick

 eCommerce Chargebacks & Fraud Consultant; Co-host of upcoming “Online Fraudcast” Podcast; Marketing Evangelist, CNP Expo

 Yes, that’s a lot of titles. But, at the core of all of the projects I work on are merchant focused, in the CNP fraud & payments industry. After spending 6 years of my career in payments and fraud operations for a payment processor, a retailer with a unique business model and one of the largest online travel agencies, I found my real passion was supporting merchants, to help them do their job better or to work on changing the industry. I’ve done that in a variety of ways for the last 7 years. -Through consulting directly, through being the in-house industry expert for the main trade association for risk & payments professionals, through creating conference & written content for a large industry conference, through podcasting & sharing some of the knowledge I have about this industry I love.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with the largest companies in the world while learning which strategies and tools work best for each business model and vertical, to provide significant savings to online companies of all sizes & verticals, to speak at several conferences, and many other great experiences. -All of this to advocate for or to support online and mobile merchants in fraud prevention and payments optimization.
