WASHINGTON – PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Michael Bolcerek, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Aristotle’s Integrity division, will be a featured speaker at the Combating Cybercrime Conference, co-located with the International Gaming Expo (IGE) in London on January 26, 2010.
Bolcerek is a well known expert in age verification and i-gaming, having previously served as President of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA), appearing as a spokesperson in the U.S. and internationally on BBC, CNN, CBS, CSPAN, CNBC, and Fox News and others. He also was instrumental in lobbying on Capitol Hill for regulated online poker and built the PPA into the leading grassroots voices for i-gaming.
His presentation, “Playing Your Best Hand in Politics; Global Age Verification” will cover the current political climate in Washington, DC and share examples of how other industries such as the movie industry and “virtual worlds” use global age verification to best position themselves with government agencies like the Federal Trade Commission. Aristotle’s CEO, John Phillips, was a member of the Internet Safety Technical Task Force that worked with state attorneys general throughout the U.S. to rid MySpace of convicted sex offenders. Using global ID verification, the company has supported Parliament’s efforts to force retailers to verify the age of customers when purchasing adult goods and services over the internet.
Aristotle is a leading non-partisan provider of political technology and data. Their Integrity division markets global ID and age verification solutions for government and commercial clients. Integrity is globally focused proving real-time online verification in over 135 countries, and it is implemented in a wide variety of applications and industries from event marketing, digital marketing and government uses to verifying age and identity for financial services, alcohol, tobacco, video gaming, movies, adult entertainment, social networks and virtual worlds.
“This is a great opportunity to discuss a subject I’m passionate about — global ID and age verification — and to help i-gaming industry representatives learn how to move the needle with government leaders. It is also an opportunity to educate legislators about what is available and used ‘right now’ in the i-gaming business.”
Mr. Bolcerek’s presentation is scheduled for 14:20 – 15:00 on January 26, 2010 in room 2 at the Earls Court Conference Centre Warwick Road, London, SW5 9TA.
