Pinsent Masons Global Payments Conference


Payments are in a state of technological and regulatory evolution. Mobile and interconnectivity have brought about fundamental societal shifts, changing the ways in which people the world over access and use money.

Opportunities abound for banks, payment system providers, retailers, financial product providers, technology companies and others that can adapt. But to adapt requires effective navigation of the changing legal and regulatory landscape where privacy, data security, confidence in payment systems, competition law issues and impediments to effective worldwide industry collaboration remain concerns.

Our Global Payments Conference will look at the global perspective on these opportunities and challenges, the UK and European market approach, and provide updates from other parts of the globe including from Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and the Middle East.

Speakers will include representatives of industry leaders from Google, PayPal and Barclays, the regulatory view of the Financial Conduct Authority, and the views of industry bodies and product owners, collectively providing attendees with insights into the current thinking on regulatory change, internationalisation of products, how compliance by design will grow in importance and what is on the horizon.


 

Out-Law Breakfast Seminar
The connected world - The implications of using data everywhere and in everything


Connected technologies and the networked world are seen as providing endless opportunities as well as being a source of systemic risk.

Business, governments and digital disrupters are all weighing the opportunities which greater connectivity brings.  From connected homes, cars and intelligent buildings to retailers and banks that provide digitally-enhanced real life experiences – connectivity is bigger than the internet of things, M2M and telematics, and it subsumes big data.

Every business wants to make connections that count – a key differentiator today and a route to survival in tomorrow’s world.  But what are the risks that arise from those connections and how can businesses form strategies to deal with those risks?  

At the Autumn 2014 Out-Law Breakfast Seminars we will consider:

  • the opportunities connected technologies present – innovation in the connected technologies themselves, in systems and ultimately in how data are accessed, used and manipulated; 
  • the legal and commercial issues that arise – from questions of rights to use, share and market data to the competition law aspects of relying on data-driven conclusions.

This seminar will help you understand the legal and commercial issues that you will encounter when using connected technologies to become a customer-centric business.
