Open Banking & SCA Forum 2020 | Amsterdam: Harnessing Open Banking and Preparing for Strong Customer Authentication

The European Union’s revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) has paved the way for a new era of Open Banking globally. As a result, it will have huge impacts on business models, security mechanisms, and innovation in banking. In recent times, a question that has arisen consistently is how security and innovation can go hand-in-hand?

Open Banking was introduced to change and improve consumer’s bank, but what’s become evident is that with PSD2, the number of third-party payments providers (TPPs) connecting to banks’ systems has increase, boosting the risks of unauthorized access to customer data or even fraudulent initiation of payments. So, banks need to increase security, but at the same time grant access to all registered TPP—while also striking a balance between strong customer authentication and frictionless user experience.

Through our research, we have identified that banks are struggling to implement Open banking along with SCA. Therefore, we are proud to organise Europe’s first dedicated forum on Open Banking & SCA to address this important topic. This event is an extension to our already successfully running “SCA Summit,” which was held in London, June 2019.

This unique event will be jointly represented by 20 leading speakers and it aims to gather about 150+ qualified attendees (mostly from local and regional banks, regulators, standard bodies, selected FinTechs) who are looking to stay ahead of the curve.

Gijs Boudewijn | Chairman | EBF
