This session will answer three key questions:
1. What are the drivers and trends affecting the cross-border payments ecosystem?
2. Are traditional cross‑border payment services adequately positioned for today’s challenges?
3. How are emerging cross-border payment models creating innovation from inefficiency?

Traditional means of authenticating customers such as user IDs, passwords and knowledge-based questions are increasingly breached and available to bad actors. These widely used forms of authentication also create friction for customers and restrict adoption of digital channels and processes. New technologies and wide adoption of mobile devices are making it possible to increase security while reducing friction for customers across channels. Firms are beginning to map out a path to getting rid of passwords.
