Presented by Theresa Kananen, AGG
10:45 AM - 11:00 AM Break Please find someone at Mastercard and thank them for being our hosts.
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM "De-Risk Your Portfolio by Leveraging Consumer Insights and Identity Data" Data is powerful. If used correctly, it can be the secret to your success. But ignore its potential and your business could suffer irreparable damage. We’ll reveal the hidden value of consumer insights. Find out how identity attributes can be used to accurately block fraud and confidently enter new markets. Walk away with actionable advice to safely increase revenue across your entire portfolio. Understand the power of digital + physical identity attributes. Speaker - Jared Kernodle, Kount
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM Lunch Gather around the proverbial campfire for sandwiches and networking.
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM "Is It a PayFac or a Marketplace? Case Study Gameshow" This interactive session will use real-world cases to help us collectively learn the differences between what is being labeled a 'Payment Facilitator' and what is being called a 'Marketplace'. Hosted by Alexis Lichterman, Salus Payments
1:45 PM - 2:30 PM "Third Party Definitions and Impacts on the Payment Ecosystem" As we navigate the payment ecosystem, we learn there are a variety of names for the same type of third-party providers. Similar to driving down streets in various cities, the name of the road may change names or even spelling. This session will provide an overview of the various third-party definitions and discuss the nuisances of each. The goal is to provide a deeper understanding of terminology. This will be a fun interactive session so keep your heads up as Vocab and candy fly about.
