Cryptocurrency & Payments Security Summit
Virtual Summit November 1 - 2, 2022
Over the last year, we have witnessed an unprecedented change in how the world interacts with money and how commerce occurs. This change has been led by the ability to take and make payments at an unprecedented speed and scale.

Payments today can move in a permissionless, decentralized world, across borders, peer-to-peer and can be innovated upon at the speed of the internet and software to suit a specific need. The explosion of digital assets moved from a bitcoin-only world to a multiverse of alt-coins, stablecoins, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and decentralized finance (DeFi). Rapid expansion of the cryptoverse and its mainstream adoption by traditional financial institutions, investors, and payments companies is causing a material shift in how we think about the future.

We now not only have the ability to build to meet the needs of our customers at a rapid pace, but also the need to work along with regulators and policy makers who are working to understand and find the balance to implement a clear framework that protects individuals in this new, decentralized world. We look forward to hearing from payments and crypto experts who are facing some of these questions as they help to build the future of payments and crypto.
ISMG's agendas provide actionable education and exclusive networking opportunities with your peers and our subject matter expert speakers.

Mastercard's Claire Le Gal on Responding to the New 'Fraud Universe'
Claire Le Gal, Sr. VP, Fraud Intelligence, Strategy & Cyber Products, Mastercard

If we have learned anything from digital transformation, it's that fraud now comes in multiple forms across multiple vectors - simultaneously. And for financial services organizations to be able to spot and stop these schemes requires tearing down silos and building new partnerships like never before.

Claire Le Gal, a 26-year Mastercard veteran, shares exclusive insight on:

  • Emerging fraud trends - and why they are so challenging to detect
  • How we can make it harder for the fraudsters to succeed
  • Why fraud fusion centers are only the start of the cross-enterprise collaboration that needs to occur

As banks, merchants and individuals continue to adopt faster payments, fraud is outpacing fraud prevention.

What are the technologies and controls we need to mitigate this criminality? 

This expert panel will share insights and strategies, including:

  • The faster payments fraud landscape;
  • The technologies and controls needed to mitigate this criminality;
  • How can we improve information sharing and collaboration efforts.

OFAC on Crypto Sanctions Compliance
Lawrence Scheinert, Associate Director, Compliance and Enforcement, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) , U.S. Department of the Treasury

Virtual currencies are beginning to play an increasingly prominent role in the global economy. The growing prevalence of virtual currency as a payment method likewise brings greater exposure to sanctions risks—like the risk that a sanctioned person or a person in a jurisdiction subject to sanctions might be involved in a virtual currency transaction. Accordingly, the virtual currency industry, including technology companies, exchangers, administrators, miners, wallet providers, and users, plays an increasingly critical role in preventing sanctioned persons from exploiting virtual currencies to evade sanctions and undermine U.S. foreign policy and national security interests.

In this Exclusive Session with Lawrence Scheinert, Associate Director, Compliance and Enforcement, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) at U.S. Department of the Treasury we will explore:

  • Who Must Comply with OFAC Sanctions?
  • Consequences of Noncompliance
  • How Do You “Block” Virtual Currency?

Ari Redbord, Head of Legal and Government Affairs, TRM Labs

Eric Lorber, Principal, Financial Crimes Unit, PWC
Caroline Hill, Director of Global Policy and Regulatory Strategy, Circle

The promise of cryptocurrency - cross border value transfer at the speed of the internet - presents tremendous challenges for businesses and policy makers. But, according to our panel of experts, those challenges are outweighed by the opportunities to bring banking services to the unbanked corners of the world, to fund humanitarian needs, and democratize finance. We will talk about both the challenges and opportunities in this new internet of money.
