WSBI-ESBG takes part in forum on authentication


​​BRUSSELS, 22 February 2017 - WSBI-ESBG​'s Payments and Securities expert Norbert Bielefeld will take part on March 6 in a panel on authentication in financial services​ during a special seminar​ in Brussels.  

Convened by the FIDO Alliance and held at the Microsoft Center Brussels and titled "European Policy Forum: The Future of Authentication", the seminar is designed to  learn more about how next-generation authentication technology, powered by FIDO standards, is making it easier than ever to deliver a customer authentication solution that is not only unphishable, but also easy to use.​

Bielefeld joins a variety of speakers from government and industry to explore how the regulatory landscape around authentication in industries like financial services and eID is evolving to reflect changes in the authentication marketplace.​

Why it is important

Between PSD2 requirements for Strong Customer Authentication, the eIDAS initiative, and the continued epidemic of password-centric cyber-attacks, the need for simpler, stronger authentication technology in Europe has never been stronger.
