Since this webinar was recorded, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has released a statement indicating they are delaying enforcement of PSD2 SCA requirements from March 14, 2021 by six months to September 14, 2021 due to the exceptional circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis. The ultimate goal is to minimize potential disruption to both consumers and merchants.

In our recent webinar, “Ready or Not: Important dates for 3-D Secure,” two of Cardinal’s subject matter experts tackled the following topics:

  • Important dates for EMV® 3-D Secure (recent and those coming up fast)

  • What these mandates and requirements mean to merchants and issuers

  • Advantages and opportunities that EMV 3DS offers as an authentication solution

Webinar host Paul Harrison, Head of Sales Enablement and Business Development, and guest speaker Maggie Bodak, Director of Business Strategy and Operations – Global Product, chatted about upcoming government and regional mandates, why these dates are important, and most of all, what they mean to you as a merchant or issuer. That’s what’s really matters isn’t it? They also explained the benefits of EMV 3DS in meeting the 2nd Payment Services Directive (PSD2) requirement for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). Paul and Maggie addressed each of the following dates and mandates individually:

PSD2 SCA Timeline - April 2020

One big milestone to note: issuers located in the European region are going to be required by Visa to support EMV 3DS v 2.2 by September 14, 2020.
