We’re gearing up for Money20/20 in Las Vegas, the unmissable conference for those in payments and financial innovation. With about 12,000 attendees, the four-day show promises insights from hundreds of speakers on a broad range of topics, with valuable discussions and opportunities for start-ups and established companies alike.
Ever since we started working on Digital Identities in 2012, our focus has been knowing and mitigating the risk of transactions. There is the risk in:

Examples of P2P services in the United States include Circle, Facebook Messenger, Snapcash, and Venmo. Often with P2P there are no fees for individuals to send or receive money.
Expected Increase in Card Not Present Fraud
EMV cards or chip cards were first introduced in Europe in the 1990s as a way to increase credit card security. As EMV became prevalent across Europe, merchants experienced significant decreases in fraud at point-of-sale vs. mag stripe cards.

Closely integrating payments and fraud prevention, the partnership will prepare online merchants for the rising CNP fraud rates due to EMV adoption and the expansion of FinTech payment models.
The ONBOARD initiative provides FinTech companies with a complete technology package and operational framework for minimizing the risk and compliance challenges of onboarding online customers
