Glenbrook's George Peabody has just posted "The Age of Context and Security" in which he explores a set of new technologies that he believes could, in combination, "produce a defense in depth that we have not enjoyed for some time."
Combining the smartphone and the cloud, five “Age of Context” technologies or ACTs as I’m calling them, will change how we live, interact, market, sell, and navigate through our daily and transactional lives, if they haven’t already. The many combinations and intersections of these technologies are raising expectations, and concerns, over what’s to come. Everyone has a stake in the outcome: consumers, retailers, major CPG brands, watchdog organizations, regulators, politicians, and the likes of Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, eBay / PayPal, and the entire payments industry.In this post, George explores some of these technologies and how they could be combined and used to enhance overall payment system security. He'd welcome your reactions and comments!
