Gemalto (News - Alert) is discussing the future of payments at the 2013 Payments Summit, a forum for smart, secure payment technology, implementation, and markets.
The global specialist in digital security confirmed participation on two panels at the summit that is organized by the Smart Card Alliance (SCA).
The 2013 Payments Summit is focusing on EMV and migration to this global standard. Attendees of the event are getting a chance to know how migrating to EMV will help develop mobile payments and bring additional value to the greater payments ecosystem.
Gemalto executives expressed their views on both NFC and EMV enabling the attendees to gain insight into secure transactions and digital security solutions offered in the market.
Gemalto discussed its perspective during the Keynote Panel Session "Mobile Wallets Debates: NFC vs. The Cloud?" This session was led by Jack Jania, senior vice president, Secure Transactions, World Wide Strategic Partnerships on Tuesday, February 5, 2013.
The company will also speak today at the panel "EMV Experience Panel: Issuers, Merchants and Processors Discuss Their Experience with EMV."
Jania will speak on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 4:15 - 5:15pm for this session.
Gemalto has more than 10,000 employees operating out of 74 offices and 14 Research & Development centers, located in 43 countries.
The company was in the news last year when it was selected by the Vodafone (News - Alert) Group, a mobile communications service provider to provide and operate its global Trusted Service Management (TSM) platform and deploy NFC services solutions.
This contract serves as the foundation for secure and convenient ‘wave and pay’ contactless transactions via mobile phone.
