Silicon Valley is home to Apple, Google, PayPal, and Sybase, companies that could finally give payment-accountholders back the control they lost when Diner’s Club and BankAmericard were formed. Javelin’s president will present the Customer Driven Architecture model, and present some challenging questions about how consumers, merchants, bankers and tech innovators will respond as Silicon Valley aims to put individuals in charge of their money once again. Even as identity fraud is raging, new technology from apps stores to predictive analytics could allow individuals and merchants to work together in real-time, revolutionizing the payments industry. What will the outcome be? This interactive event will use audience participation and the industry’s best market research data to try and answer the unanswerable.
As usual, we will have ample time for networking as it is one of the objectives of the BayPay Forum and we hope that you will enjoy the evening. This event is free but attendance is limited to the first 22 participants.
Don’t forget, if it is not already done, to register to the BayPay group on LinkedIn where you will be able to network with other payment professionals and exchange on our exciting and evolving industry. As of today, 1,196 executives have already registered and the number is growing as word of mouth is spreading about our organization. Our mailing list has over 3,000 people from the payment industry.

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.
