EMV Tokenization Webinar

Tokenization – the process of substituting valuable data with a token made up of random alphanumeric characters – has the potential to be a payments security game-changer for its ability to protect sensitive account data for in-store and online transactions. Issuers, acquirers, processors, merchants and service providers can find out all about tokenization and how to implement it at the November Smart Card Alliance webinar recording, “EMV Tokenization.”

The Smart Card Alliance Mobile Council webinar provided an overview of EMV tokenization, reviewed the requirements for token service providers, discussed the tokenization methods used in digital wallets like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay, as well as in-app purchases, and addressed tokenization implementation and security considerations.

Webinar presenters were: Sree Swaminathan, First Data; Sadiq Mohammed, Mastercard; Randy Vanderhoof, Smart Card Alliance; and John Sheets, Visa.
