Ecommerce skimming impacts thousands of online retailers and results in the loss of millions of dollars. In 2022, Shopping Cart Inspect reviews identified that 92.57% of researched ecommerce sites had malicious, suspicious, and/or concerning issues.

25-year veteran in technology, John Bartholomew (SVP of Technology), will use data from over 500 forensic investigations from 2022 to show why eskimming is on the rise, as well as the technical and financial threats of eskimming and formjacking. He will cover how hackers are developing more sophisticated eskimming techniques and tools that organizations can use to monitor their ecommerce sites.

The world is in a state of volatility and uncertainty when it comes to digital assets. And why not? With the recent implosion of FTX and the shock waves felt around the world, and the many ups and downs of serial crypto winters, we’re all feeling a bit skeptical.

Sit in and hear Moe Vela, Executive Producer and Co-Star of the hit TV show Unicorn Hunters, and Rosie Rios, the 43rd Treasurer of the United States and Board Member at Ripple, discuss the current state of crypto and the path forward. No-one knows the crypto space better than Moe and Rosie, and they’ll give it to you straight – the good, the bad and the ugly of the current state and the hope for a brighter future for digital assets, blockchain and Web3.

The opportunity for merchant acquirers in the B2B payments space is massive: as of 2022, the U.S. B2B market represents approximately $29 trillion in annual payments — a leap of approximately $2 trillion within four years. Yet, despite how far we’ve come, there is still tremendous opportunity to further digitize how we conduct business globally.

Electronic B2B payments, specifically via virtual cards, are forecasted to match or exceed the first wave of change that occurred during the Great Recession. Today, the opportunity to capture and process electronic B2B payments has never been greater.

This session will discuss the latest trends in the B2B payments industry, how acquirers are adapting to drive growth, and the technologies creating the greatest opportunities for innovation.
