Digital Payments

Digital Payments

As new forms of digital payments begin to take hold, the old assumptions no longer work. What does it mean to issue a card when there is no card? How can transactions be risk managed when payments credentials are masked and scrambled by design? And what is the impact on the loyalty and reward programs that are designed to depend on the presence of card data?

Join two experienced Glenbrook partners for a dive into the new world of digital payments. In addition to exploring the implications for the various stakeholders in the payments ecosystem, they will also discuss long-term opportunities for next generation players. Come find out who stands to gain and who stands to lose as the payments industry goes digital.


Upcoming Session

All of Glenbrook's Payments Insight Workshops are available as private workshops or webinar series.

Glenbrook's Russ Jones is the program manager.
