  • Innovation in Identity & KYC: A Thought Leader Interview Innovation in Identity & KYC: A Thought Leader Interview Jodie Paula Cohen of ECN interviews Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity Recorded: Mar 24 2016 21 mins
    Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.

    With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.

    In this exclusive webinar Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Identity & KYC conference, catches up with leading Identity expert Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity, to gain some practical insights into how these challenges can be tackled.

    Questions will include:

    1) How close are we to being able to access digital information about identity in a consumable and trusted way, across industries?

    2) Which technologies should organisations be looking into, to support their identity and KYC processes?

    3) Is the blockchain a complete solution for improved identity verification, or just part of a wider solution?

    4) How can institutions ensure a user-friendly and compliant KYC and onboarding process?

    5) What are the challenges and benefits of putting in place a ‘financial services passport’?

  • Why do big banks and regulators want crypto-currencies to fail? Why do big banks and regulators want crypto-currencies to fail? Robert Courtneidge, Locke Lord LLP; Ashley Winton, White & Case Recorded: Jul 15 2014 68 mins
    With the massive take up of crypto-currencies around the world we review what they are and how the Banks and Regulators are looking at this new brand of money on a country by country basis.

    Which countries have chosen to regulate it, which have denounced it, which have stopped short of regulating it but have imposed taxes, which countries are ‘on the fence’ and which countries simply refuse to regulate.

    What are the regulators trying to do and why?

    Do the Card Schemes want crypto currencies and if not why not?

    What is the ‘Block Chain’, how does it work and how can do we draft commercial agreements around it?

    What would happen if the technologies behind the crypto currencies were taken up by fiat currencies? Would we still need payment systems at all??

    These are just a few of the key questions we will be answering in this high speed race through the exciting world of crypto currencies!
  • Mobile Payments – Really!! What Do You Mean? A Regulators Worst Nightmare Mobile Payments – Really!! What Do You Mean? A Regulators Worst Nightmare Robert Courtneidge, Global Head of Cards and Payments, Locke Lord LLP Recorded: May 6 2014 34 mins
    Mobile payments is a wide term which can refer to a multitude of different activities based around a mobile phone (smart phone). These activities can include acquiring (MPOS, QRCodes, NFC and other contactless means of payment), mobile banking, peer-to-peer payment innovations, premium SMS and other pay by phone options and payment/loyalty apps.

    The regulation that covers the above is equally wide ranging from the regulation of payment services and electronic money to the use of personal data and telco regulation.

    The European Commission in its wisdom drafted a very good green paper back in January 2012 entitled "Toward an integrated European market for card, internet and mobile payments" which recognised that mobile was simply a device/medium and not a payment method in itself. The aim of the paper was to increase competition, provide more choice and transparency for consumers, grow innovation and promote payment security and consumer trust. As recently as November 2013, the European Central Bank published its "recommendations for the security of mobile payments" and these have been endorsed by the national banks of the European Union. In the draft Second Payment Services Directive we see a continued push into this space of creating a secure and regulated platform for mobile issuing and acquiring in payments.
