    In association with:

    Register for webinar

    Join NFC World’s editor and speakers from SIMalliance and EnStream to find out how to select the right security strategy for your NFC service and gain insight into the lessons learned from a leading market deployment.

    Both host card emulation (HCE) and secure element-based solutions are now expected to be widely deployed around the world, along with multiple hybrid deployment models that enable a graduated approach to security.

    This free to attend, one hour webinar offers a unique opportunity to understand the future of the NFC security landscape.

    Our first presentation will examine the key differences between host card emulation and secure element (SE)-based NFC solutions and will explore the opportunities presented by the two technologies. Attendees will learn about the concept of ‘acceptable risk’, the unique requirements of individual NFC service use cases and both the advantages and limitations of SE and HCE technologies.

    Our second presentation will be a case study from Canada, a mobile payments success story where all of the country’s large carriers and four of the country’s ‘Big Five’ banks now offer their customers secure element-based NFC mobile payments. The presentation will explain how Canada has become a world leader in mobile payments and the factors that have been key to its success.

    The webinar will be chaired by NFC World’s editor, Sarah Clark, and there will be ample opportunity for questions and answers at the end.
