Panel — The new business opportunities in the Canadian payment industry

October 31, 2018: 2 p.m. — 3 p.m.

Real-time payments are taking over by facilitating cash flow management and improving the customer experience. The number of innovating solutions keeps growing but so does security issues and the risk of a data breach. How can we manage this new reality?
