The Mobile Wallet - secure mobile payments

The mobile wallet is not a new concept but it is extremely relevant to in today’s business climate. Starbucks are now accepting mobile payments from iPhone and BlackBerry applications at 6,800 stores, offering a quick and easy payment method for customers using in-store scanners. Orange and MasterCard are launching a joint NFC-ready handset in Spring 2011 and Visa and 02 are following suit later in the year. Juniper Research forecasts that the number of mobile payments will grow nearly tenfold by 2013.  With various payment models available (SMS based transactional payments, direct mobile billing, mobile web payments (WAP), near field communication (NFC) and direct carrier/bank co-operation) how can companies guarantee that mobile phone transactions are as secure as possible? As new payment technologies emerge, so do challenges to security. This briefing will discuss security risks to mobile transactions and consider ways to overcome these challenges.


Why attend and what will you get out of it? 

·         Consider how security issues could affect your company and consumers

·         Discover how other companies are utilising the mobile wallet

·         Hear about market trends and likely future directions of this market

·         Quiz an industry expert on your areas of interest or concern

  • SME owner/managers in the digital and creative industries
  • Companies looking to gain insight into emerging technologies
  • SME Owner/managers wanting to apply new technologies within their company 
  • Companies looking to utilise academic expertise from InfoLab21
