Payments Revolution Part I: Technology

Payment Innovations & Technologies School of Study
10:00 AM-11:30 AM

The continuously evolving payment capabilities of smartphones, and the development of touchless devices such as VISA’s payment ring and Amazon Alexa, have demonstrated their consumer appeal. The person-to-person (P2P) space is also giving rise to greater consumer purchasing power with companies like Facebook, PayPal, Venmo, Google and Square, and now with the FI-supported Zelle upping the payments ante. This introductory course explores the interconnectivity of the technology surrounding the payments revolution and provides insight into how your organization can adopt some of these capabilities to benefit both you and your customers.

Payments Revolution Part II: Payment Experience

Payment Innovations & Technologies School of Study
12:45 PM-2:45 PM

Building upon the technologies discussed in Part I, this course provides a deep look into the changing face of commerce, and how it directly correlates to evolving technology. With apps like Uber automatically processing your fare with the card on file, and Starbucks allowing you to place an order and pay before getting to the coffee shop, merchants are completely changing the consumer payment experience, especially for those offering reward programs. In a world where faster has become a way of life, these enhancements are winning consumers over in the user experience arena. Attend this class to understand how e-commerce and data contextualization have evolved, as well as how better in-person payment experiences are affecting consumer and business relationships.

Virtual Currency Investigations:  Fear Not the Blockchains

Payment Innovations & Technologies School of Study
12:15 PM-1:45 PM

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have become an alternative and decentralized payment rail for sophisticated organized crime groups to facilitate criminal activity including international money laundering.  As financial institutions and their customers become increasingly involved in this payment system, it’s critical that they understand the underlying technology and how to investigate it so that they can remain compliant with international AML regulations. Students come away with a solid working knowledge of what blockchain technology is, how it's leveraged in criminal activity such as money laundering, and how to successfully investigate it for compliance and criminal investigation purposes.
