Blockchain in banking from ideation to Realisation

Overview

Blockchain technology has created waves around the world by bringing transparency and massively reducing costs in many industries. In order to stay competitive, more and more banks are adopting Blockchain technology which will allow them to further improve the transaction velocity, reduce fraud risks and boost their business growth by offering holistic payment solutions.

Regulators and central authorities are also aiming to harness Blockchain to future-proof payment systems and encourage banks to modernise their legacy payments infrastructures for an efficient, secure and more transparent banking service.

In 2017, Kinfos Events identified the growing interest on this technology, which would be banking industry’s next frontier and this year we are launching Europe’s first dedicated conference-expo on this key subject. This unique initiative brings together some of the top innovators and leading experts from the Blockchain ecosystem including major Banks, key Regulators and selected Technology providers.

This show aims to address Blockchain in Banking from Ideation to Realisation. The technology has been there for a while so it’s time now to move from the proof-of-concepts (PoC) to actual implementation.
Join this one-of-a-kind show to obtain latest insights about the implementation costs, timelines for a smooth transition from a Legacy System to a Blockchain based system, how to address Privacy and Security concerns, how Blockchain can help banks to reduce overall costs, improve accuracy, promote faster transactions and much more.

Join us and be a part of this transformation.

SCA Summit
2019

18 June| London

Interoperable Real-Time Payment, Anytime, Anywhere

Overview

• What Is Strong Customer Authentication?
“Customer authentication” is a process that allows a device to verify the identity of someone who connects to a network resource. As per the latest regulatory requirements in Europe it has now become mandatory for the banks and other financial institutions to make their ‘Customer Authentication’ more secure and risk proof. Strong Customer Authentication known as SCA is a new mandatory requirement for authenticating online payments that will go live in Europe on September 14, 2019. This regulation will apply to online payments within the European Economic Area (EEA) where the cardholder’s bank and the business’s payment provider are both in the EEA.

• What is the Strong Customer Authentication requirement?
SCA will require payments to be authenticated using at least two of the following three elements:
1) Something that the customer knows (e.g., password or security question)
2) Something the customer has (e.g., phone or hardware token)
3) Something the customer is (e.g., fingerprint or face ID)
