Continued growth in adoption of payments requires that the industry, the public, and regulators have confidence in the ability of providers to safeguard their platforms and protect consumer and business users from suffering losses from cyber-attacks.

These risks are persistent and manifest, ranging from vulnerabilities in mobile network infrastructure; customer and merchant devices; business processes; and payment provider and national payment infrastructure.

Technology to undertake cyber-attacks is becoming more readily available and at a more accessible price, and emerging techniques used to undertake these attacks and exploit vulnerabilities are more sophisticated and prevalent.

Our cyber-security summit - jointly organized by Mastercard and the Columbia Institute of Tele-Information’s DFSO - explores how the public and private sectors, mobile networks, and law enforcement, cyber-security innovators are dealing with these threats.
