Payment fraud prevention and Identity at PYMNTS Innovation Project 2014

In its second year, attendees to the PYMNTS Innovation Project 2014 conference at Harvard University discussed, debated and considered the rapid transformation of payments, with a focus on payment fraud prevention, a key area where identity has a very strong role to play.

The conference gave a global and historical context to payments innovation by balancing the old and the established with the new and disruptive. Contributors were diverse including George Wallner, CTO of Loop and founder of Hypercom which launched the first modern mag-stripe POS terminals and network equipment; corporate leaders like former Tesco CEO Sir Terry Leahy and of course disruptive payments entrepreneurs from LevelUp, Ripple and Coinbase.
