Special Announcement from Mastercard at KNOW 2019
The KNOW conference is proud to report that Charles Walton, Senior Vice President of Digital Identity Products at Mastercard will be making a special announcement at this year’s show on Tuesday March 26th at 9:00AM. We are incredibly excited to have Mastercard on the stage at KNOW after having an impressive impact on the digital identity space over the past several years.
Just today, Mastercard announced that it has acquired Ethoca, a global provider of technology solutions that helps merchants and card issues combat fraud in digital commerce. Ethoca is a strong addition to our multilayered cyber strategy, helping customers take immediate action against fraud and eliminate chargebacks before they can occur.” said Ajay Bhalla, president, cyber and intelligence solutions at Mastercard said in response to the acquisition.
Other notable events included their strategic partnership announcement with Microsoft to advance digital identity initiatives. “Today’s digital identity landscape is patchy, inconsistent and what works in one country often won’t work in another. We have an opportunity to establish a system that puts people first, giving them control of their identity data and where it is used,” said Bhalla in their motivation behind the new partnership.
