FIDO Alliance to Showcase World Beyond Passwords at Money20/20

Written by Andrew Shikiar on . Posted in Blog

Next week’s Money 20/20 conference provides answers for payments industry attendees who have one  very simple question: “What’s next?” The FIDO Alliance is delighted to showcase how FIDO authentication helps the payments industry move beyond passwords to provide a superior user experience while protecting against phishing, man-in-the-middle and replay attacks, and making data breaches using stolen or default login credentials a thing of the past.

FIDO authentication already is widely supported in the financial services industry. A third of the FIDO Alliance board – the strategy-setters in the development of FIDO authentication standards – is comprised of leading global banks, e-commerce retailers and technology providers in this space. Deployments from leading service providers such as Bank of America, PayPal and BC Card highlight the authentication path forward, allowing users around the globe to use FIDO strong authentication every day.

For those of you attending the show, there are several ways to learn more about FIDO authentication for payments and connect with us at Money20/20:
