On 29 September, Standards Australia CEO Dr Bronwyn Evans is hosting a forum with Andy White, COO of the Australian Payments Network on Digital Transaction Technologies. Paul Jennings, A/g CEO of Eftpos Australia, Bill Doran, Head of Oceania for Swift, and Mario Sist, Principal Consultant at UL are also confirmed to speak.
Australia is one of the global leaders in the adoption of digital technologies and a hub for the finance industry. However the accelerating rate of technological change and increasing penetration of mobile devices, combined with shifting customer preferences, is having dramatic implications for the ways in which financial services are structured, delivered and consumed. Standards play a key role in promoting best practice, safeguarding consumers and ensuring our financial sector is efficient, predictable, sustainable and internationally competitive.
The forum will discuss emerging financial transaction technologies, particularly within the payments industry and discuss the need for standardisation in this area.
