The Federal Reserve and nearly 500 payment system stakeholders have joined forces as part of the Federal Reserve’s Faster and Secure Payments Task Forces to improve the U.S. payment system. The Faster Payments Task Force will be publishing their final report in 2017 highlighting their assessment of faster payments solution proposals and the challenges and opportunities in making real-time payments a reality in the United States. The Secure Payments Task Force is working to outline ways to improve payment identity management practices, provide guidance on standardizing definitions of fraud and risk data, and publish a framework for protecting sensitive payment data.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from experts leading and participating in this crucial collaborative effort. Join these panelists as they deliver a thought-provoking discussion highlighting what’s to come and how the work underway to improve America’s payments ecosystem could impact you.
