COMMERCE & PAYMENTS, AN ONGOING REVOLUTION
Retail business is facing multiple upheavals: e- and m-commerce, social networks, private sales, market places, sharing economy, CtoC, digitalization of outlets, cross-channel, self-check-out, mobile POS … Meanwhile, the payments industry is at the heart of a new deal (disruptive technologies and digital channels, new regulations, competitive pressures, new entrants and models ...), a phenomenon exacerbated by the increasing convergence between off- and on-line commerce. As such, all payment solutions have to fit with the customer experience, before, during and after the purchase and to bring value-added services (ubiquitous payment; speed and recognition; digital coupon; instantaneous reward; geolocation...).

BIOMETRICS FOR AUTHENTIFICATION: THE DEATH OF PASSWORDS
Comfort in use and authentication in digital environment have been a major shift in biometric landscape. Mobile and cloud access, image and voice detection for consumers, have impacted content diversification and technical levels in biometrics. Uptake rate and usage are also growing at good pace. This conference track offers a synthetic view on various authentication domains for biometrics: mobile and cloud access, identity management chains, biometric deployment for trust environments. Critical infrastructures protections, legal and forensic investigations are also in the scope.

SMART BORDERS: CONTROL? PREVENT? PROTECT?
The continuous increase in worldwide travel and transport flows is fuelled by tourism, migrations for economic, climate and insecurity factors. Quantitative expectations expect doubling worldwide air passenger’s traffic alone to more than 6 billion units in the coming 15 years up. In parallel, qualitative management of mass transit, tourism and migrations has become more sensitive and important. Obtaining smooth and seamless transits, increasing security, managing human rights and international agreements, preventing criminal inflows become key challenges. A rapid pace is transforming the nature of the border itself, with new techniques and architectures management associated with innovative and interoperable registrations systems. Welcome to smart borders in the XXI century!

SECURING THE IOT: THE HYPER-CONNECTED FUTURE
IoT applications and services are expanding fast in ever more economic sectors. After healthcare, energy, utilities, smart cities or agriculture, IoT is growing in retail, banking, consumer services and home automation and will not stop there. Multifunction is also increasing as in healthcare stemming from monitoring and diagnostic to implant management or telemedicine. In this context, securing the IoT is becoming a key challenge for many businesses and administrations. This conference track offers important answers to this challenge: handling data in IoT, consolidating components and layers in network security management; approaching technology protocols and standards, including 5G or IPV6, for an effective use; understanding key concepts in IoT governance with a focus on security, privacy and liability. Gaining insights on use cases such as healthcare, agriculture, home automation, energy or industry.

DATA MANAGEMENT AND PRIVACY: THE NEXT BIG THING
We are experiencing an important transition in Privacy management and data protection. It has become both a transversal subject for businesses and a trust dimension in customer relationship. Today there is a significant evolution as data protection is being redesigned in the international regulation landscape, also making new structural progresses in business processes from project designing to cloud servicing, widening user control options. This program tackles international updates on privacy, including general data protection regulation (GDPR) in Europe and setting up a “Data Privacy Shield” between Europe and the US.

PAYMENT DISRUPTION: WHO? HOW? WHY NOW?
The rapid growth of digital technology is disrupting lots of different industries and there’s no better evidence than in the payments industry. For many years the industry moved more slowly, reliant on the decisions of a handful of companies. With the digital revolution on the way, the payments growth has become a truly global phenomenon. Many new players have been entering the industry. Almost every day, new startups (or corporations) try to launch a new solution. In this session, we will have a look at the current payments landscape and see who are the companies trying to disrupt the existing systems.

E-ID & E-GOVERNMENT: THE DRIVERS FOR INNOVATION
Digital interactions lead to increasing the scope and length of e-government strategies using electronic identification as a central pillar. After administration efficiency and cost savings, new objectives aim to strengthen digital trust, integrate appropriate economic services and improve security and immigration policy. In a context where international identity scheme interoperability and consistency are also pursued in various world regions, the program looks into many issues including lessons learnt with «digital by default» in administration policies, implementation of international identity schemes, progression with effective trust services, private-public interoperability, services personalization with citizen cards and mobile identity; e-gov practices from social inclusion or share economy transparency to improved control in migration flow management.

REGULATORY CHANGES ARE SHAPING A NEW MARKET
The succession of European directives, the decisions by competition authorities and central governments are making the payment landscape more homogeneous and more competitive. Amongst the major effects, let’s mention the creation of the Payment and Electronic Money Institutions, the decline of cards’ interchange fees, the advent of European SDD and SCT instruments, the willingness to split scheme and processing, the access to bank accounts allowed to third parties and the prospects of «instant payments» ...The range of possibilities is becoming more and more limitless.

FROM IOT TO CONNECTED COMMERCE
The IoT eco-system is developing at a fast pace. While there were only a few billion connected objects in 2014, many industry reports estimate that this number will reach 25 to 50 billion by 2020. When payment capabilities are added to connected objects, this will be the advent of connected commerce powered by IoT. This track will try to answer the following questions: What is the current status of IoT and payments? How can payment develop further the IoT eco-system? What are the main opportunities and hurdles for the development of Connected Commerce? What are the innovative solutions in the IoT sector, and specifically in the wearables, connected home and connected cars segments? What are the strategies of the different players?

Conference Tracks

MOBILE PAYMENTS
Unsurprisingly, Mobile Payment is the subject of desire and promises in all countries while E-Wallets have shown their relevance in e-commerce (convenience, conversion rate, fight against fraud, mobile friendliness ...). This has now led to a true battle of titans between the web giants (Amazon, Alibaba, Google, Facebook, Tencent ...), the international card schemes (Visa Checkout, MasterPass), the big retailers (Walmart Pay, Starbucks, FlashnPay...), the banks (Chase Pay, Paylib ...), the smartphone manufacturers (Apple, Samsung, ...), the telecom operators (Vodafone, Orange, Telefonica, MTN ...) and a myriad of startups… In this permanent tumult, each stakeholder will have to gather colossal firepower, great ingenuity and value-added services to win on the long run.

THE FUTURE OF BLOCKCHAIN: HIT OR FLOP?
Among the hottest «buzzwords» of the year, Blockchain undoubtedly appears near the top. If in the past years, crypto-currencies hit the headlines for good or evil, they have not experienced any significant development so far. However, the interest of a growing number of stakeholders moved on the virtues of Blockchain technology, which demonstrates considerable potential in many areas, be it in the financial sector, automotive, IoT or health.

CYBER RISKS & FRAUD: THE SECURITY PUZZLE
Customer accounts manipulation, assaults on cash flows and money transfers, blocking, spying or stealing intangible assets, creating industrial control system flows are a few examples of what every organization needs to cope with rising against strategic impact threats. This track addresses cyber risks evolution, intrusion detection and threat prevention, information security management, detection capabilities inside and outside the organization, identification and authentication strengthening practices, APT circumscription and forensic investigations, cyber audit practices and crisis management.
