ThreatMetrix, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced the 2013 ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Prevention Summit, themed Strength in Numbers. The third annual conference will take place September 11-13 at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, Calif.
The ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Prevention Summit is the largest of its kind, featuring industry-leading guest speakers and presentations. Aligning with President Obamas recent Cybersecurity Executive Order, which called on the private sector to share information on cyberattacks, the summit will encourage collaboration on the topics of cybercrime, account takeover, fraudulent new registration and identity theft.
No one can prevent cybercrime alone it takes a collective effort, said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. By joining with peers and industry leaders to collaborate, summit attendees will take away valuable insights and best practices that they can apply to their organizations cybersecurity strategies. We know that cybercriminals effectively share information to commit crimes we need to do the same to stop them.
The conference will connect professionals from financial institutions, e-commerce merchants, payment processors, government agencies, social networking companies and insurance providers, among other organizations. The conference will also offer attendees a chance to network and collaborate over local activities such as fly fishing, mountain biking and kayaking on Lake Tahoe.
We recognize that some of the best information exchanges with industry thought leaders happen outside of the conference room. To facilitate these conversations, the Summit will encourage attendees to engage in activities unique to Squaw Valley and its spectacular mountain environment, Rankin said. By the end of the conference, we are confident each attendee will take away insights that will help them adjust to the ever-changing threat environment.

Indiantown, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Government support of alternative fuel and sustainable energy is critical for American biodiesel fuel producers, but more importantly our future generations as well. President Barack Obama agreed with this sentiment during his 2013 Inaugural address. While addressing thousands yesterday on Capitol Hill to lay the ground work for his next four years in office, Pres. Obama made a strong commitment to the pursuit of sustainable energy. He declared a failure to respond to the threats of climate change would be a betrayal to future generations.
President Obama continued saying, The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it. And he is correct. His support comes as the American Petroleum Institute (API), a national trade organization that represents Americas oil and natural gas industry, has fledged a full media and political attack against the biodiesel industry. According to Biofuels Digest during their January 16th media conference API deemed the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) unworkable and stated that they would like to see complete repeal of the RFS.
The United States Environmental Protections Agency instated the RFS mandate to ensure transportation fuel sold in the United States contains at least a minimum volume of renewable fuel. The elimination of the RFS mandate would also remove the Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) which are attached to every gallon of green fuel and add a subsidy market value. Genuine Bio-Fuel Inc. (GBF), Executive Vice President Jeff Longo insists, Without RINs and the RFS mandate, there is no biodiesel industry.
Longo hopes the Presidents vocal support will channel into more long-term legislative change to support the growth of the industry. Longo believes, The cost of not acting to preserve our natural resources is far to great. Policy needs to reflect the importance of biodiesel production as well as production of other alternative energy sources and new technologies.
Longo appreciates the Presidents candidness and agrees the changes are not going to come easy, but they need to be made. Because in the Presidents own words, Thats how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure our forests and waterways, our crop lands and snow-capped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God.
More about Genuine Bio-Fuel: Genuine Bio-Fuel Inc. is a leader in biodiesel production and technology in Florida. Working with local communities since 2008, they collect used vegetable cooking oil, plant oils and fats, refine it and efficiently produce renewable, sustainable clean biodiesel that meets or exceeds the required ASTM standards. An RFS-2 Registered Renewable Fuel Producer, this dedicated environmental steward is 100% privately funded.

Hearsay Social, provider of the worlds most trusted social sales and marketing platform, announced today that its CEO and founder Clara Shih has been honored by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader (YGL). Joining her are William James Adams (aka will.i.am), the US singer and recording artist, whose i.am.angel Foundation transforms lives through education, inspiration, and opportunity; Chelsea Clinton, board member, Clinton Foundation and special correspondent for NBC News; and Nate Silver, the statistician who calculated Barack Obama had a 90% chance of winning the 2012 presidential election and crunched polling data to successfully predict the result in 50 out of 50 states. Past inductees into the Forum of Young Global Leaders include Salesforce.com CEO and founder Marc Benioff and Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
Ms. Shih was granted this prestigious honor for her industry leadership and innovation in transforming the way global companies do business on social media. Ms. Shih demonstrated this game-changing approach to social media in 2007, when she developed the first social business application, Faceforce, and subsequently authored the New York Times-featured bestseller, The Facebook Era, now used as a marketing textbook at Harvard Business School. She then founded Hearsay Social, the worlds most trusted social sales and marketing platform, empowering large companies to build stronger customer relationships, grow revenue, and bolster their brands across social networks.
Drawn from a pool of several thousand candidates, the 2013 YGLs were chosen by a committee, chaired by H.M. Queen Rania Al Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The selection was based on the proven track record of the individual, his or her leadership experience, ability to overcome adversity, and commitment to society.
The Forum of Young Global Leaders provides a unique effort to engage the younger generation into the management of global affairs, working together and being integrated into the larger Forum community. The Young Global Leaders have an exceptional opportunity to improve the state of the world, Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum.
Recognition by the World Economic Forum is a humbling experience for me, said Ms. Shih. I believe in the transformative power of technology and am passionate about how social media will transform business-to-customer relationships worldwide. It is an honor to have the opportunity to share this passion with other leaders from around the world.

Two-time NCAA All American, Nana Meriwether was crowned as the newest Miss USA in a ceremony hosted by Donald Trump on Wednesday. Miss Meriwether took over the reigns as Miss USA from the former Miss USA Olivia Culpo, who recently won the title of Miss Universe in December. According to organizers of the 2013 Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, the new Miss USA will be making the ball her debut event; the theme of the event Promoting Peace, Diplomacy & Global Unity is in keeping with her humanitarian efforts.
The 2013 Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, presented by GrupoMex will celebrate the second inauguration of President Obama with an immensely diverse crowd of individuals from the public and private sectors – ranging from one of the most respected and longest-serving members of the U.S. Congress; Congressman John Conyers, of Michigan – to the beautiful Miss USA. The event promises to be a very exciting and entertaining evening, while also taking major strides for funding programs such as agriculture in underserved regions, clean water & sanitation for poverty-stricken global citizens and orphanages for AIDS/HIV, all focal points of Miss USAs The Meriwether Foundation.
I am incredibly honored to be attending the Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, said Miss USA Nana Meriwether. As the newly crowned Miss USA, I hope to use my title to raise awareness for The Meriwether Foundation, which focuses on improving the health and well-being of people living in rural villages in five countries in Southern Africa.
Ambassadors Inaugural Ball Co-Chair and Host Committee member, Dr. Tebelelo Seretse, Ambassador of the Republic of Botswana to the United States & Canada, commented that We are very happy to have Miss USA among the honored guests to be in attendance at our inaugural day celebration. Our mission in this event is to build financial support and awareness for several deserving non-profit beneficiaries, with The Meriwether Foundation being central among them.
Honorary Consul to the Republic of Botswana, Mr. Robert Shumake [Business Chair of the Ambassadors Inaugural Ball], added aside from the obvious beauty and intelligence that Ms. Meriwether possesses, I am personally elated at how she has also excelled athletically during her college career. As the founder of the Shumake Relays (the largest outdoor track & field event in the Midwest), I have a firm grasp of the commitment that it takes to set and reach goals; this is the foundation of the Shumake Relays – where we believe that sports can become a type of universal language for kids and adults – surpassing the boundaries of class, color or location.
Born in South Africa while her parents were doing volunteer work there, it would appear that Miss Meriwether was destined to lend her energies to humanitarian causes. The Meriwether Foundation was co-founded by her long-time humanitarian father; Dr. W. D. Meriwether, and provides programs throughout several areas of South Africa.
About Miss USA:
Nana Meriwether is an African American with strong ties to South Africa and many of its suffering denizens. During her reign, Nana will continue her work for The Meriwether Foundation as well as working with some of the official cause alliances of the Miss Universe Organization including the USO, the Same Sky Trade Initiative, Best Buddies, Gildas Club and the National Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
About Meriwether Foundation:

It operates health, HIV/AIDS, agriculture, food security, water, sanitation and sustainable economic empowerment programs in rural and peri-urban areas of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.
