    John Erik Setsaas, Identity Architect (Signicat)
    With PSD2, the requirements for strong authentication is increasing, and unless something is done, this will be really frustrating for the users. Also, strong authentication by itself, does not really prove who is authentication.

    · Frictionless payments, does PSD2 and Secure Customer Authentication make this a past memory

  • Internet of Payments: Interoperability is the key to payment data exchange Recorded: Jan 23 2018 61 mins
    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'?
  • Go Beyond PSD2 Compliance with Digital Identity Recorded: Jan 23 2018 49 mins
    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.
