Faulkner will also be presenting on “Mobile and Digital Payments Security and Authentication”
During Faulkner’s part of the presentation, Tuesday, June 9 from 2:30-3:15 p.m. CDT, he’ll be discussing the benefits of using rapid security controls for mobile banking transactions to detect cyberthreats in real time to act quickly against those threats.

Faulkner on the growing fraud rate and sophistication of cybercriminals
“We have seen fraud in the mobile payment sector continue to rise, and the channel will continue to see more sophisticated cybercriminals targeting mobile transactions. In the current cybercrime environment, financial institutions must assume identities and devices have been compromised, due to the high volume of recent data breaches, before authenticating transactions. At the summit, I will share how financial institutions can leverage a digital identity network to quickly and accurately authenticate good users and keep out cybercriminals on mobile devices and other digital channels.”
