Speaking about the conference, the CEO/Executive Secretary of E-PPAN, Onajite Regha, says, the Annual Payment Systems and Fraud conference provides a platform for a holistic outlook on cyber fraud in the payment industry.
“It is highly essential for industry participants as well as private and public-sector to collaborate in the fight against electronic payment fraud. We have seen a lot of breeches in the industry and as innovations continue to happen and more advanced technologies are introduced to improve convenience and access to payments, we cannot shy away from some negative consequences on the system.
