Bruce Parker, Founder & CEO of Modo Matthew Leavenworth, CPO of Modo Brian Billingsley, CRO of Modo
Innovation is being throttled in payments due to friction caused via its closed networks, siloed systems, and walled gardens. This lack of interoperability of systems has created huge inefficiencies in payments and the high cost of integrations mean that a lot of good ideas are still on the sideline.
The Modo team, including new Modonauts Matthew Leavenworth and Brian Billingsley, will answer: What does payments need now? How is integration different than interoperability? What is the 'Internet of Payments'?
Nick Caley, VP Financial Services and Regulatory, ForgeRock
As European financial institutions work towards compliance with PSD2, there's an intense focus on securing customer data as it's opened up to third parties.
Essential requirements around securing APIs to enable direct payments and account aggregation are accompanied by increased regulations for strong customer authentication. Financial institutions are looking to improve their management of digital identities to ensure customer data remains private.
Not only can a modern digital identity platform help companies with API security and authentication requirements, it can also drive innovation in areas like consent management, with dashboards that allow customers to control their personal data at a granular level. Banks can embed identity into their digital platforms in order to use PSD2 as a strategic opportunity to build trusted relationships with their customers.
Victoria Yasinetskaya, Marketing Director and Estefania Gual, Senior Business Analyst at Strands
