Building the Trust Foundation with Debbie Gamble of Interac, Tanya Woods of the Chamber of Digital Commerce and Sue Britton of FinTech Growth Syndicate

Post-Cambridge Analytica, consumers continue to question the security and privacy of their personal information. Financial services companies have a fiduciary responsibility to protect consumer data in a connected world, while emerging technologies such as Digital ID and Blockchain are enabling alternative access to trusted services. A trust layer will be more imperative than ever to build and maintain consumer confidence. This panel will explore how companies will drive the future of commerce by enabling merchants and financial services entities to build stronger trust frameworks into their business, tech and data models. All driven by consumer trust and consent.
