Blockchain, Tokens, Chips: How Best to Fight Fraud?–with post-election comments

Which technologies will come to the rescue?

Thursday, November 17th, 2016
at the offices of Davis Wright Tremaine
1251 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY

Fraud has always been a part of commerce. As the world becomes more and more digital, fraud follows because, to use that famous phrase, “That’s where the money is.” Fast internet connections are widely available across the globe. Hackers everywhere use this connectivity to probe the entire internet for weaknesses and exploit them.

If technology facilitates fraud, how good is it at playing defense?

Join a panel of experts on November 17th for a drink, networking, and a lively NYPAY discussion on how to arm ourselves in the battle against fraudsters.
