PSD2 represents a dramatic overhaul of the original Payment Services Directive. One of its key provisions is called SCA, short for Strong Customer Authentication, which will impact all eCommerce companies doing business in the European Union.

In this webinar Edgar, Dunn & Company provides background on PSD2 and SCA, focusing on what SCA is and when it is required. Next, a detailed look at four exemptions which apply to certain types of eCommerce payments is shared. EMV 3DS, also known as 3D Secure 2.0, is highlighted, along with areas in which the European Banking Authority has yet to issue final clarifications on SCA rules. The webinar concludes with a suggested framework to implement an SCA strategy and a brief Q&A period.
