Mobility: The Next Frontier In Authentication

How long can we go without our phones? That's tough to answer considering our phones have become us. Mobile devices can be a user’s identity, their payment device and in many cases their wallet.  On Wednesday, December 17 at 1 pm EST,  Doc Vaidhyanathan, VP Product Management, Digital Payments at CA Technologies and  MPD CEO Karen Webster, will take part in a lively discussion on how new authentication techniques, as well as new mobile capabilities for contactless payments, can be used for everything from authenticating people to websites and eCommerce transactions through mobile in-store payments.
