The COVID-19 digital environment is demonstrating the extreme importance of protecting payments and securing transactions. From individual to business, Canadians have had to shift their habits from in-person to digital, relying on online shopping, using new video platforms, like Zoom for meetings, and even receiving private advice, from health to finance, digitally.

How do Canadian businesses and individuals stay protected as their whole life moves online? Host Cyrielle Chiron is joined by Alex Frappier, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Training at the CanCyber Foundation and Martin Kyle, Payments Canada’s CISO, to explore current cyberspace issues and the importance of protecting against fraudsters.

How can Canada lead the way to a future of dataful payments? Mike Sigal, founder of 20022 Labs, and Andrew Higgins, leader of IBM Payments Centre-Canada, join The PayPod host Justin Ferrabee to discuss how we can drive ISO 20022 adoption in Canada and abroad.
