SCA Standards & Regulations Across the Globe

SCA, or Strong Customer Authentication, is not a topic exclusive to the EU (or the PSD2, for that matter). Today, we can see it popping up in financial conversations across the globe. And even though global SCA regulations all share the same stigma of 'expensive' and 'inconvenient', the need to implement SCA and increase the security level of our authentication systems is as relevant and urgent as ever before. Read on to see what is brewing in the world of payment authentication across the US, Asia, Europe and the Nordics.

Establishing Trust Anchors: The Link Between SCA and KYC

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is something we’ve covered many times. And while SCA is an important topic, required by regulators and considered best-practice in terms of security, SCA by itself is not enough to secure a transaction. In addition to doing SCA correctly, you also have to know exactly who you’re identifying - and that is where “know your customer” (KYC) comes into play. As such, in this post, we'll look into how SCA and KYC are connected, review some of their challenges, and consider what the link between the two might look like in the future.

Let's Talk More About Virtualisation and Sandboxes

In computing, the ability to isolate processes and the resources those processes can access has been a remarkable feature, making software solutions more secure than they used to be. Of course, this concept of isolation is not new. It has been around for a while, with applications standing the test of time by providing continuous outstanding security benefits to users of computing devices. In this post, as a homage to such technology, we will discuss how virtualisation and sandboxes have provided sound isolation on computing devices.
