The power of the credential: Simple, open, secure

Friday, May 8 at 12:30 p.m EDT

It’s important to keep security top of mind and transition from unsecure technology, such as proximity and magstripe, to smart credentials. Moving to smart technology doesn’t have to be complicated, but it is necessary to understand your options. Don’t get tricked by proprietary solutions. Misinformation or lack of knowledge on this topic can leave you in an undesirable—and potentially costly—situation. Know the facts before making decisions about your credential technology platform. Our hosts will explain differences between proprietary and open solutions and how the technology you choose today will impact your future.
