Payments in the Pandemic

27 May 2020
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM BST

Please join us for this webinar, held in partnership with UK Finance, which will explore the issues impacting on the payments sector as a result of the COVID-19 global outbreak.

Broad themes to be covered include:

  • The stress on retailers and how this is affecting the interaction between merchants and payment providers;
  • Regulatory bodies giving more time for key payment implementation projects, particularly those having a significant impact on retail – for example, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and Cross-border Payments Regulation;
  • The rise in online fraud and need for stronger security process – for example, SCA and Confirmation of Payee.
