CNP Expo 2018 ended yesterday, which means it’s time to reflect on some of the noteworthy events, developments and sessions from the past week. Everyone on the Cardinal team had a great time in Orlando, Florida at the conference, and they are excited at the prospect of traveling to San Francisco for CNP Expo 2019.
On Wednesday, Cardinal won the Customer Choice Award for Best Identity Verification and Authentication Solution. Once again, we would like to thank everyone who voted for us throughout this process. It’s truly a great honor, and we are proud to be part of the industry protecting merchants, issuers and consumers from digital fraud. Now, on to the rest of the week.
Throughout the week, there were many great sessions and panels touching on a variety of different topics, notably fraud, specifically related to mobile and Internet of Things devices, mobile apps and authentication.
One of the memorable panels from the week touched on gift card fraud and all the potential ramifications of this damaging practice. This is becoming a prevalent issue in the digital commerce space, and is threatening consumers and merchants.
There was another noteworthy panel on fraud, entitled, “How Fraudsters Attack Mobile Apps.” The panelists specifically mentioned 3-D Secure 2.0 as a must-have solution that can effectively protect the mobile world going forward.
This was a theme during the conference, as many panelists and attendees mentioned that they believe 3-D Secure 2.0 is a viable, and necessary, solution to a lot of the problems that have plagued the digital commerce space.
Additionally, Cardinal’s own Kevin Crockett, Senior Director of Global Customer Services spoke on a panel yesterday. The panel, "The Rise of Authentication” was very informative and gave everyone in attendance some insight into the importance of authentication in our new, digital world.
Lastly, Cardinal’s booth this year was situated right at the entrance of the exhibit hall, which led to many meaningful conversations and interactions with old friends and new acquaintances. The Cardinal team had a great week and we can’t wait for 2019 in San Francisco! If you have any questions about Cardinal or our services, please contact us to learn more!
