Participants in this roundtable will discuss how financial institutions can work with their consumers to detect and combat fraud from the front lines, while increasing engagement within their mobile banking app and/or mobile wallet.

Table 2. How Transformations in the Payments Ecosystem Impact You - David Lamoureux, President and Managing Partner, Continental Divide Group
The pace of change in the payments ecosystem continues to accelerate requiring executives to reshape their companies while embedding strategic flexibility.

With the payments world changing by the minute, even the most progressive financial institutions can’t keep up with every innovation.

When does it become critical to the overall company strategy? What are the risks and benefits to being an early or late adopter? Most importantly, how do make sure you’re not designing a product in search of a consumer.
