The Building Blocks of Converged Identity

One of the key strengths we have in the Secure Technology Alliance and U.S. Payments Forum are the diverse perspectives from multiple stakeholders within the broader technology community. Not only do we have deep expertise in the payments industry, but also significant representation from members that support the access control, IoT and cybersecurity industries. It might seem that there is not much overlap on a daily basis between these market segments, but the base-level technology building blocks that enable these markets to function is relatively consistent, and it’s safe to assume that advances in any of the building blocks would benefit each of the major markets that we serve today. Therein lies the true power of both of our organizations. Read my letter for more insights on this topic.
