FIDO Alliance Roundtable at Money 20/20 in Las Vegas

Written by Jeremy Stanek on . Posted in Blog

If you’re heading to Las Vegas for Money 20/20, be sure to attend our roundtable session: “Simpler Stronger Authentication – Is Mobile Identity the New Money?” on Monday, October 26 from 11:10am – 12:00pm featuring several market-leading FIDO Alliance Members.

As you may already know, the US accounts for one fifth of the world’s card volume but nearly half of the world’s card fraud. The US is in the midst of rolling out Chip and PIN to reduce card-present fraud – but that will only displace theft to card-not-present (CNP) fraud, as has been well documented with the same rollout in Australia and Europe.

Our roundtable will feature FIDO Alliance members and our Executive Director discussing how FIDO standards enable fast, simple, strong authentication on personal devices to facilitate modern payment transactions – whether that be via revocable tokens in consumers’ mobile phones or online transactions to cloud-based wallet services. This capability represents a significant shift in how to prevent all types of fraud, not just offline card fraud.  It also carries big implications for card brands, merchants and consumers so we encourage you to drop by and engage in the conversation during this session.

Participants in the roundtable include:

Moderator:

David Birch – Director of Innovation, Consult Hyperion

Speakers:

Philip Andreae – VP Field Marketing, Payments, North America, Oberthur Technologies

Thomas Ko – Global Co-GM, Samsung Pay

Brett McDowell – Executive Director, FIDO Alliance

Mike Ragunas – CTO, Payfone

Liz Votaw – SVP Omnichannel Authentication Strategy, Bank of America
