Digital security industry’s premier association
Secure Technology Alliance is celebrating its 30th anniversary and the meaningful contributions it’s made to the secure identity and payment industries over the years. With a rich history as one of the longest tenured associations in the technology industry, the Alliance was a pioneer in the early efforts to educate the technology community on the merits of smart card technology! While facilitating the adoption of smart cards across multiple industry segments, combating fraud, and educating and facilitating the digitization of secure identity transactions, the Alliance has had a significant impact on the everyday lives of consumers across the globe.
The Alliance thanks all the member organizations and individuals that have made this organization the success it is today – it wouldn’t have happened without your diligent efforts and support! And we’re just getting started – opportunities to continue the tradition of educating and advocating for secure transactions are enormous. Our future direction includes thought leaders in various technologies and multiple vertical markets, working in combination with the Identity and Access Forum and U.S. Payments Forum. This expanded reach enables the Alliance to continue to educate and advocate for new technologies that make everyday life more convenient and secure.
