“The Disruptive Payments Ecosystem”

Matt Ozvat, Head of Developer Integrations

Monday, August 1, from 12 p.m. – 12:50 p.m.

This session focuses on the intersection of various security innovations such as EMV or end-to-end encryption with innovations such as mobile payments. With more than six billion mobile devices in the world and ePayments gaining traction, EMV and PCI payment security concerns are prevalent. VARS must address a retailer’s operational expectations and need to know what solutions to propose for every environment they face.

“Pioneering protection beyond PCI”

Ray Moorman, Sr. Leader of Product and EMV Solutions

Monday, August 1, from 12:00 p.m. – 12:50 p.m.

In order to deliver customized "next gen" retail experiences, retailers are collecting more personally identifiable information about consumers. The time is NOW to move and protect all of the sensitive data streams – going beyond PCI scope to embrace protecting the entire customer.

“The Future of mPOS”

Walker Thompson, Director, Alliance Management

Monday, August 1, from 1:00 p.m. – 1:50 p.m.

Many industries will be disrupted by the consequences of technology innovation and the move to mobility. The Point-of-Sale ecosphere is not immune to such oncoming changes. As the hype about mPOS wears off, the Channel needs to explore real-world challenges as implementation continue to progress. Long thought of as a solution for small businesses, mPOS continues to influence traditional POS lanes making it critical to understand the key drivers merchants are using when exploring mPOS solutions. In addition, Omni-Channel, where the shopper has a complete shopping experience both physical and virtual in store, is changing the shopping experience. We will explore use cases to dive into what is happening in the marketplace and where the opportunities lie.

“Security as a HUGE Revenue Opportunity”

Matt Downs, Head of Channel and Business Development, Integrated Payments

Tuesday, August 2, from 9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.

Due to the recent media focus on data breaches and the EMV liability shift, security is top-of-mind for merchants. The liability shift presents an opportunity for VARs to start a security conversation, but EMV alone is not enough to really secure the payments ecosystem. Merchants also need end-to-end encryption, tokenization and PCI compliance. In this session, the panel will discuss revenue opportunities related to implementing and selling secure POS solutions.
