Is Strong Customer Authentication Standardized? And What Are SCA's Challenges?
On September 14, 2019, the next stage of the PSD2 Payment Services Directive will come into force and will not only bring profound changes to consumers. The focus is on two-factor authentication (2FA), which aims to make payments on the internet more secure via verification with a second factor. But how do banks implement the new strong customer authentication forced by the EU Commission for account access and payment initiation? So far, there is no consistent line visible. This lack of clarity is not only a problem for bank customers, but especially for fintechs. Equally chaotic is the transition in e-commerce and credit card payments.
Our meetup "PSD2: Strong Customer Authentication - Chaos?" on September 9 at jambit in Munich is supposed to give an impulse for discussion and knowledge exchange concerning PSD2 and two-factor authentication. We are happy to welcome interesting speakers with different backgrounds to share their views on the matter. Jay Vanberkel from Adorsys will give insights into PSD2 Banking APIs at the Berlin Group and focus on the question: "is strong customer authentication standardized?". In the second talk, Stefan Ostermayr from Treefin will outline the challenges of SCA from a fintech's point of view and will show possible solutions.
If you are interested in learning more about PSD2 and strong customer authentication and discussing with us, you are welcome to visit our jambit office in Munich on September 9. Anyone interested can join the meetup for free.
