The Merchant Advisory Group’s Mid-Year Conference is coming up, and Ian Poole, the Sales Engineering Director at Cardinal, will be there and will be very busy. The conference takes place February 15-17 in Atlanta, Georgia, and will be an important event for merchants.

On Thursday, February 16, Ian will be moderating a panel on gift card fraud and some of the emerging challenges associated with this specific type of fraud. Over the past few years, gift cards and prepaid cards have become very popular among consumers, and subsequently, fraud rates on these cards have spiked.  Panelists include Dee O’Malley, Senior Director, Payment Acceptance at Best Buy; R.B. “Skeet” Rolling, COO at InComm; Sue Knotts, Manager of Retail Initiatives at Wakefern Food Corp., and Tanya Strawn, Senior Treasury Manager at Starbucks.

Additionally, Ian will be giving a presentation aimed at merchants entitled, “What 3DS 2.0 Means to You.” One of, if not the biggest story of the year in the digital payments industry was the long-awaited release of the 3DS 2.0 specifications. There is still some uncertainty surrounding the new protocols. Fortunately, Cardinal, and Ian, are here to help provide some clarity regarding this issue. You’ll learn what to expect with 2.0, how its focus on data will help issuers and merchants, what you need to know and how you can prepare.

The digital payments industry is constantly changing, and Cardinal will be there to support all of these changes. With One Connection to Cardinal, we can Drive your Digital Commerce.
