  • Recommendations for the security of mobile payments 30 January 2014
    On 15 November 2013 the Governing Council of the European Central Bank (ECB) decided to launch a public consultation on the “Recommendations for the security of mobile payments”, in the context of the work undertaken by the European Forum on the Security of Retail Payments. PNC has commented on the Draft recommendation and in general our views is that the EU community need to establish a harmonized EU/EEA-wide minimum level of security but at the same time it needs to ensure a level playing field among participants to the payment market. In the Mobile Payment market new participants have entered, participants who is not participating to the traditional payment market. Therefore SecurePay should re-evaluate what participants/market players should be included in the Recommendations.
