Background:

This Communications Alliance Comms Essentials seminar will focus on fraud committed using a mobile device and mobile payments more generally.

Given consumers’ increasing preference to use mobile devices for all kinds of everyday activities, it is not surprising that these devices are also being used to commit or attempt to commit fraud, particularly for financial transactions.

Also of interest for our industry is the arrival of the New Payments Platform with the launch targeted for November 2017. The new platform will enable real-time clearing and settlement for simple or complex payment solutions, between two people or between many different parties. It is expected that a large number of financial institutions and other organisation will connect to the platform over time.

Fraud, ID theft and mobile payments, the way they relate to each other and what can be done to minimise the former while facilitating the latter is a topic of priority for the telecommunications industry. An informed debate will assist all stakeholders to move into a more secure mobile payments future.
