Next week in Las Vegas the payments industry will be converging on the Money20/20 conference. Running from November 2nd to the 5th, the event is expected to host more than 7,000 attendees including over 600 CEOs from around the world as they celebrate and discuss the newest innovations in money. This year, the event will include a panel, moderated by FindBiometrics president Peter O’Neill, on the topic of biometric payment security.
The session, titled Biometrics Panel: Secure Identity in an Evolving Mobile Payments Ecosystem will feature a lineup of industry experts deeply involved in this area. Steven Rahman, director of Technology and Strategy at Samsung; Bill Smith, technology evangelist and senior policy advisor at PayPal (and board member of the FIDO Alliance); Pierre Antonio, Natural Security Alliance’s chief marketing manager; and Maxine Most, principal at Acuity Market Intelligence make up the dynamic panel.
Biometric technology and payment innovations are greatly intertwined, combining unprecedented levels of customer security and convenience. Between the deployments of FIDO Ready technology that leverage the Samsung Galaxy 5S fingerprint sensor, to point of sale palm vein scanning transaction kiosks, to Apple’s soon to launch Apple Pay mobile wallet and myriad solutions in between, biometrics are playing an increasingly important role in the consumer payments world.
The panel is part of Track 2: Identity, Security and Fraud at Money 20/20. It will take place on Monday, November 3 at 10:30 AM.
