2017 Year-End Review
In December 2013, the Retail Payments Risk Forum began an annual tradition of authoring an end-of-year post highlighting what we consider to be the most significant payment topics or events of the year. We continued that tradition this year, but we changed our platform, instead covering our top events in our Talk About Payments webinar series. Watch a recording of the webinar's presentation.
We encourage you to listen to the webinar, during which we discussed in more detail the following key payment stories of 2017:
- Fraud schemes
- Data breaches
- Chip migration
- Payments security
- Same-day ACH–phase II
- Person-to-person payments
- Mobile payments
- Virtual currency/Distributed ledger
As we begin 2018, we in the Risk Forum look forward to continuing our efforts to mitigate payments risks through industry collaboration and convening. We will also continue to offer our insights using multiple platforms, including this weekly blog and our quarterly webinar series, Talk About Payments. As always, we value your feedback and comments, so do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Risk Forum team members.
Best wishes for a happy, and fraud-free, new year from all of us at the Retail Payments Risk Forum!
