Payment credentials are widely available as a result of Account Takeover and eSkimming attacks. Payment authentication practices will be thrust into the spotlight as a means for mitigating this risk.

PSD2’s Strong Customer Authentication has already kickstarted this journey for many MAG merchants. This session looks at the current state of payments authentication, beyond just 3D-Secure, and where it’s headed as these practices promise to have a deep impact on payments in the coming decade.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what authentication is
  2. Recognize what authentication is beyond 3D-Secure
  3. Identify the new types of authentication and where to look for more information
