The world of payments and transactions is changing faster than any of us imagined.The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitisation of commerce and the emergence of the cashless society. It has created new opportunities for payment service providers to create value for businesses and societies in digital transition – but it has also exposed our industry to new risks.

2020 has a most unusual year. In the latest edition of Futuring Payments, we focus on 3 critical areas of transformation: the payment world after the covid-19, fraud and risk management and digital currencies. The payments industry is in transformation. Enjoy an illuminating glimpse into the future with Futuring Payments 3. 

Identifying the green shoots of recovery

2020 has been an extremely unusual year due to COVID-19. Despite the catastrophic implications for health and for the global economy, there are some positives that have emerged during the crisis, not least when it comes to digitisation and the reduced use of cash. The crisis is teaching us new lessons, showing us new
ways of operating and highlighting the huge potential of digitisation.

Fraud: working to outsmart the criminals

For companies to prevent hostile hackers from successfully attacking them, they need to understand how hackers think and what they look for. Too many companies today seem to have forgotten this simple lesson. When does the nerdy fascination with solving complex programmatic challenges turn into criminal activities? What does the hierarchy of hackers look like? Is there still a cultural and ideological aspect to hacking? What is the difference between a hacker and a cracker? And how do companies defend themselves better going forward?

Pegged to real-world assets such as traditional currencies and commodities, stablecoins are, as the name suggests, very stable. And it’s encouranging to see both private companies and central banks around the world are using stablecoins for a wide variety of purposes.
