Jaime also spoke about some of the benefits of 3-D Secure 2.0 and highlighted the improved consumer experience, relative to the original 3-D Secure 1.0 environment. 3-D Secure 2.0 signals a shift towards a more consumer friendly authentication experience, enabled by a reduction in cardholder friction. With 3-D Secure 2.0, there’s ten times more data being shared with issuers, resulting in better risk decisioning and far fewer challenges to the cardholder. This process ultimately creates speedy, secure authentication, improving the overall consumer experience.

In addition to key benefits, Jaime touched on other topics, including:

  • The market opportunity for 3-D Secure 2.0.
  • The strategies to take advantage of 3-D Secure 2.0 benefits in a 1.0 world.
  • The difference between authentication and authorization, and how they work together.
