From paying your rent, to that cup of coffee - every payment in the world goes through a mind-bending number of channels, companies, networks, technologies and sets of eyes. Until recently. New technology in the payments sector, from encryption & authentication to digital currencies and open APIs have opened up new avenues for moving money, and new challenges too.
So join this panel of industry heavyweights as they discuss the world that holds, up the world of money, what challenges lie ahead, and what our world of payments may look like in the future. Featuring:
- Steve Kirsch, CEO & Founder, Token - A revolutionary open Banking platform
- Omri Dahan, Chief Revenue Officer, Marqeta - The innovative payment platform
- Giles Sutherland, VP Product & Strategic Development, Carta Worldwide - A leading digital payment processor & enabler

2018 will be a year of change in Financial Services with GDPR, Open Banking and PSD2 looking to shake up the world of banking and payments as we know it.
Attend this debate where we've pulled together a panel of experts who will talk real-world case studies and discuss everything you'll need to stay ahead and capitalise on opportunities brought about by these new regulations.
This session will be filmed at BrightTALK's "Banking on the Future" meet-up on June 20th and will be streamed live from the event.
With the new European Payment Service Directive (PSD2) the most talked about topics are the new access to account (XS2A) options that Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) will get. But as the Directive not only aims to open the banking infrastructure to foster innovation but at the same time it also aims to increase security and reduce fraud.
To achieve this ambition new requirements for the use of Strong User Authentication (SCA) play a central role of the Directive. The Commission have given the European Banking Authority (EBA) the responsibility to develop Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for SCA. The process has involved discussion papers, 250+ comments from different parties and by the end of February, the "final draft" version of the SCA RTS was published.
The panel will make sense of the alphabet soup of acronyms and discuss the requirements, the interpretations and the implications of SCA and the RTS.
*What is SCA?
*How can SCA be done?
*Who must do SCA?
*Who can do SCA?
*How will SCA impact transactions and commerce?
The seismic effects of PSD2 will hit banking hard in the next 18 months. And as the regulation lays the foundations for a new era of openness in financial services it is already disturbing the comfortable status quo. Banks will need to manage this revolutionary change and as the clock is ticking ever-louder towards the January 2018 deadline, we must look at what PSD2 involves, why it matters and identify threats and opportunities.
We'll explore how banks can transform and importantly, what happens if they don't. Now is the time - sink or swim, win or lose?
Token sales, also known as ICOs, represent a new capital-raising method that is being explored by a variety of companies in the market. In the past few months, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has provided guidance concerning token sales. Although the SEC did not declare that all digital tokens constitute securities, it cautioned that certain tokens may be securities and that existing securities frameworks apply to token sales, notwithstanding that digital tokens may be distributed via distributed ledger technology.
In addition, the IRS has published guidance relating to tokens that are “convertible virtual currencies” and has indicated that such tokens generally are treated as property for US federal income tax purposes.
Token sales, and the legal and regulatory landscapes in the US and around the world with respect to digital tokens, continue to evolve.
This webinar will explore the current legal, regulatory and tax landscape relating to token offerings and will consider the following:
•What are digital tokens and how are they typically used and sold?
•What guidance has the SEC provided regarding token sales, and what is the significance of that guidance?
•What guidance has the IRS provided regarding tokens and what tax considerations are relevant to tokens and token sales?
•What are some of the other legal matters that token issuers and their counsel should be aware of when contemplating launching token sales?
Remember when strong authentication meant a “one-time password” hardware token for your VPN? Now, we’ve got a workforce full of road warriors, access control considerations for new Cloud-based applications, and executives coming out of the woodwork to get their shiny iPad2 on the network. Throw in the current “breach of the day” climate, and you have to think – what’s coming next for authentication?

Last year over $250 million was invested in companies and projects using blockchain technology and cryptographic tokens. This year we have seen about that much again just in the first four months. Token-based investments are rapidly turning into a significant asset class.

Should you invest in Bitcoin Cash? Why fork Bitcoin rather than just using a pre-existing cryptocurrency? Will there be more drastic price changes in the different cryptocurrencies? Will the value of bitcoin be diluted? What comes next?
