After a very lively BayPay Forum event on Jan 23rd about the "Impact of the new Federal Reserve's ruling on Interchange on Payment business models and Innovations", we are pleased to introduce a second event this year that will fit well with the series we plan on organizing specifically on Mobile Payments in 2011.
We should have at least 4-5 events on Mobile Payments to discuss different aspects of this emerging market. Each event will have its own topic and own speakers to explain what is coming. As the buzz around NFC is intensifying with the creation of ISIS, a joint venture between AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile involving Discover and Barclays Bank or with the different pilots started by banks in the US and abroad, our first event will be focusing on the foundation of all this: How secure is the Mobile? with a panel of experts coming from the security, banking and telecom industry. Come to this event if you want to understand the challenges and what people are working on as well as, network with the payment and commerce professionnals.
This event is sponsored by Exponent.
Don't forget that, as a BayPay Member, you benefit from a 25% discount on the upcoming Mobile Payments/Contactless Alternative Payment Systems on March 29-30, 2011.

Is your cell phone more secure than your credit card? While introducing significant benefits, mobile payment also introduces some risks not known for traditional credit card payments. The threats include stealth RF attacks, but also various hardware attacks. A group of security experts discuss the technology behind mobile payments and show where things may go wrong while also discussing ways to enhance convenience and security.

When & Where
The BayPay Forum
If you are a member of the payment industry, you are invited to join BayPay, a networking group of the Silicon Valley focused on payments and composed exclusively of members in the payment community or investors in this area. If you are not yet a member and would like to join, reply to this email to get your free membership with a quick description on how you fit in the payment industry. Even after all these years, the payments industry is still expanding in both mature and emerging markets worldwide as the industry adapts to new market opportunities. New technologies including contactless cards, cell phone integration, biometrics, RFID and strong authentication are emerging and potentially creating new challenges for both financial institutions and their customers. Prepaid cards, gift cards, new forms of payment like PayPal, are all vivid demonstrations of the vibrancy of new thinking in the payments industry. With wireless ubiquity now essentially a reality, transaction aggregation and micro payments become a necessity. As the financial industry and merchants provide more and more services online, phishing emerges as a problem that requires more education and communication with consumers.
Objective BayPay's primary goal is to provide a face-to-face professional networking forum for the regular exchange of views on these issues among active professionals within the payments industry who are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. An online BayPay group on Yahoo! provides opportunities for members to interact among themselves between regular face-to-face meetings.
BayPay Is a joint initiative of Glenbrook, Edgar Dunn & Company and Daniel Chatelain from QSecure, Inc. that is open to other companies or individuals contributions.
Membership To ensure an appropriate level of professional participation, membership in BayPay group is by invitation only. BayPay members invite others to join based upon their own judgment as to who could best contribute to the group. To subscribe please go here.
