Adjusting To PSD2 And GDPR In Europe


Consumers in the European Union (EU) are adjusting to Payments Service Directive 2 (PSD2) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), even though these regulations focus on bringing greater trust through transparency. At the same time, new technologies such as biometrics are emerging in the fight against fraud. And an initiative tied to a consortium of companies is looking to redefine how automated teller machine (ATM) applications are built and used. All this, Today in Data.
