AFP Payments: Cybersecurity, Payments Insights from AFP 2014

  • By Staff Writers
  • Published: 11/20/2014
This month, we bring you our exclusive coverage of payments at the 2014 AFP Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. We begin with ChildFund International, which won the grand prize at the 2014 AFP Pinnacle Awards, sponsored by Wells Fargo & Co. ChildFund, a charitable organization that operates in dangerous areas all over the world, created a groundbreaking mobile payments program that dramatically reduced risk and cost. Next, we recap this year's Payments Roundtable, which unsurprisingly focused heavily on cybersecurity. FBI Agent Clyde Ellis provided treasury and finance professionals with practical tips they can use to protect customer data. Also, we review the results of an onsite survey on cybersecurity conducted at the conference, we recap sessions on bitcoin and mobile payments, retailers and banks spar over data breach liability costs, and more.
