Boston, January 14, 2014 – In like a lamb, out like a lion: 2013 began with positive indicators of global economic recovery and growth, but the recovery hit a number of snarls that eroded confidence along the way. Even so, there are a few bright spots for rapid growth and innovation. The mobile channel continues to be a playground for innovators, disruptors, and fraudsters alike. Merchants and financial institutions all seek to harness, monetize, and protect their assets. And evolution of technology at the point of sale will continue to represent both opportunity and threat to banks.
