NFC and Two Cents from Ken Mages


The iPhone 5,NFC,and Reality by Ken Mages
POSTED BY KENNETH G. MAGES,ON AUGUST 3RD,2011

My Opinion

I don't think Apple will have NFC in their next iPhone release. I also don’t think it will be called the iPhone 5 until it does have NFC.

Therefore,much like the iPhone 3 which had two subsequent releases (the “G”and then the “GS”) I think the next iPhone may be called the iPhone 4B for Bluetooth 4.0.

It’s never been Apple’s style to release something before it has broad market utility and frankly,what can you REALLY do with a Nexus S enabled NFC phone today?

No real provisioning for the storage of multiple cards exists yet and very few cash registers have NFC capabilities (go to ANY McDonald’s if you want to see one). Also,outside of Portland,where are NFC stickers being used for any real data gathering?

Nobody loves NFC and all of it’s capabilities more than I do,but let’s get real,until we have POS devices that accept NFC payment instruments and until we have enough NFC enabled phones and cards,and stickers,the NFC train is still revving at the station.

But that’s just my two cents…

200+ NFC Executives Unite in Miami for First Ever North American NFC Payments Event

NFC Payments USA
NFC Insight is excited to announce that the industry's biggest names are coming together for the first time in Miami on November 2-3 to discuss the best methods to foster commercial rollout.


Over the last year there has been a huge shift in momentum for the NFC industry in payment technologies. With announcements from Google, Isis, Visa and many more key players in the space 2011 has certainly been a big year. With analysts predicting revenues over $50 billion by 2014 (Juniper Research) it's clear this is a lucrative area.

Nonetheless the NFC industry has some big hurdles to mount before they are able to offer end to end payments to a critical mass of consumers. Big questions still remain, such as how to form a successful partnership between all the fundamental players in NFC, how to ensure interoperability, the best methods to overcome lack of devices in the market and how to reach critical mass of consumers and merchants.
With these questions hanging in the air it has been hard for many NFC payment professionals to make the best decisions about how to move forward and see real ROI from day one.

The evolution of the market is promising big profits for this industry, and there has been a need for a place for key professionals in the space to discuss the best methods for commercial rollout of NFC Payments.
NFC Payments USA 2011, conference and exhibition, being held in Miami on November 2-3 has been launched to address this clear need within the industry. It is the first ever event in North America to address these key concerns and bring together the entire NFC Payment ecosystem.

Lucy Lincoln, Vice President of NFC Insight, explained, "We are very excited about this once in a lifetime event. In the last year we have seen a clear need developing in the industry for a meeting of this kind that really focuses on Payments specifically, and we are very happy to deliver this now. With such a fantastic line up of speakers and hard hitting topics it's sure to be the best environment possible to foster strong partnerships and new deals."

NFC Payments USA has attracted a high calibre of speakers including MasterCard, Isis, American Express, Nokia, TD Bank, Fifth Third Bank, Coupons Inc., Samsung, Living Social, US Bank, ING Direct and Rogers Communications.
The event is expected to attract 200+ senior level executives from across the NFC Payments Value chain including banks, MNO's, TSM's, device manufactures, tech providers, merchants and couponing and loyalty companies. There is much to look forward to as Rich Clow from Citi commented that NFC Insight's European event had "Great dialogue across the key ecosystem."
Speaking on the caliber of previous NFC Insight events, Dominique Brule from Gemalto added that NFC Payments Europe had, "Great speakers, and great audience- what a success."
Lucy Lincoln continued, "Much like NFC Payments Europe we expect a wonderful mix of people and are very excited about having all of these key players in one place for the first time; it really is set to be an historic event."
Registration for this event is now open. Visit www.nfcinsight.com/paymentsusa/index.shtml, for more details.

Online Banking Safety Guide for the 47 Percent of Consumers Who Are Underprotected


New Guide Cites Top Industry Research, Identifies Three Virtual Banking "Personality Types," and Offers Tips for Safer Online Transacting
A recent poll revealed that 54% of U.S. consumers said the theft of their personal or financial information worried them more than losing their job or not having healthcare for their family members.[1]
Their worry is not unfounded. As President Obama recently acknowledged, while the Internet has transformed how we communicate and do business, “it has also led to new challenges, like online fraud and identity theft, that harm consumers and cost billions of dollars each year.”
Today, there are more ways than ever that financial information can be compromised, from offline methods such as dumpster diving and stolen laptops to email scams, fake banking sites known as phishing scams, and data breaches like the one Sony recently experienced with PlayStation.
Despite the dangers, consumers continue to embrace the anytime, anywhere convenience of online banking. In fact, only 4% of U.S. households used online banking in 2004, but by 2010 the number ballooned to 80%.[2]
Watch an animated tutorial on phishing from McAfee
Even though the majority of Americans are doing their banking online, only certain groups have taken precautions, and many remain vulnerable. As Dave Marcus, Director of Security Research for McAfee Labs points out, the education level and personality of a computer user has a lot to do with their safety level.
“Most instances of banking fraud are not due to the bank’s technology being compromised, but to people unwittingly giving out their personal banking information to criminals via phishing scams and copycat sites, or their computers being infected with malware,” Marcus said.
With that in mind, McAfee is redoubling its efforts to offer users of all stripes the very best practical information on online banking safety, whether they are banking from their computer or mobile phone.
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acting on recent data that reveals many consumers still aren’t protected by even basic antivirus software when banking online, McAfee today released an educational guide for banking safely on computers, tablets or mobile devices. According to Javelin Strategy & Research, in 2010 47 percent of household financial managers did not have antivirus software installed.
“Most instances of banking fraud are not due to the bank’s technology being compromised”
Combining McAfee intelligence with the latest U.S. banking data from many top sources revealed that most consumers fall into one of three categories of online banking behavior, and that age tends to play a strong role in safety and security habits online. Most people’s level of confidence with banking online is associated with their overall comfort level online, including participating in such activities as shopping, searching, and social networking.
McAfee identified three main personality types associated with online and mobile banking, and offers customized tips for each group in its safe online banking guide:
1. ‘Competent, But A Little Careless’ Ages 18-24: This group is the most comfortable with technology but they tend to be overconfident, neglecting to put even basic security practices into place. As a result, this group leaves themselves vulnerable to banking malware. Sixty-eight percent do not even have basic antivirus software installed on their computers, according to Javelin Strategy & Research.
Tips for ‘Competent, But A Little Careless’ bankers:
  • Start with a clean PC. This means making sure that your device is clean of threats by using a free diagnostic tool such as McAfee® Security Scan Plus, which scans and detects malware, Trojans, and potentially unwanted programs in running processes.
  • Buy comprehensive security software that protects you from viruses, spyware, adware, and identity theft. Always choose a reputable brand such as McAfee Total Protection™ software. When it comes to security software, free is not better. A September 2010 USA TODAY survey of 16 anti-virus companies shows that no-cost anti-virus programs generally lack important features such as a firewall, website health checks, and automatic updates.
  • Avoid distracted banking: Be careful not to respond to fake bank emails (or phishing attacks) because you are multitasking. Remember, banking fraud often happens because consumers give out their own user names and passwords to fake banking sites.
2. ‘Confident But Casual’ Ages 25-45: This group uses the Internet for both work and personal reasons and are the most frequent online banking users. According to Javelin, they tend to be more likely to have antivirus software installed, with 42 percent of 25-34 year-olds and 47 percent of 35-44 year-olds using it. However, according to an August 2010 NCSA/APWG Survey, this group tends to be casual or over-confident about security, with 52 percent of 25-44 year-olds feeling as if they are already doing enough to stay safe online.
Tips for ‘Confident But Casual’ bankers:
  • If you don't have online security protection already, you need a comprehensive security suite that protects you and your family’s banking integrity. Also, remember to run a security scan before signing up for any online banking services to ensure you're starting with a computer free of malware.
  • Never respond to unsolicited email from a bank that requests personal information, such as your user name, password, or address. Even if the email looks legitimate, NEVER reply, click on links or open attachments included in the email.
  • Review your financial statements and transactions as soon as they arrive, so if there are any anomalies or unauthorized transactions you can clear them up right away.
3. ‘Conservative And Cautious’ Over 45 Years Old: This group is not as familiar with technology as younger generations, and a smaller percentage use online banking. Javelin found that they tend to be more cautious when going online, and as a result, they are better protected than the younger group, with approximately 55 percent having security software installed. This group should continue to be cautious about offline banking scams in general; research shows that some older Americans are vulnerable to automated voice messages that request financial account numbers.
Tips for ‘Conservative And Cautious’ bankers:
  • Be sure to run a security scan on your PC before you sign up for any online banking services to ensure you're starting with a computer free of malware.
  • Beware of copycat sites that look very similar to major banking institutions, and always be sure that you've typed in the correct web address when visiting your bank online. Be familiar with your bank's logo and site design.
  • Create strong passphrases. Don't be afraid to go beyond the standard eight characters and a couple of numbers - the longer, the better, and change your passphrases often.
Mobile Banking
According to Forrester Research in its January 2011 U.S. Mobile Banking Forecast, mobile banking has experienced rapid growth in the U.S. over the past three years, more than doubling from five percent of online adults in 2007 to 12 percent by the second quarter of 2010. Furthermore, Forrester predicts that one in five–or 50 million–U.S. adults will be using mobile banking by 2015. It is important to remember that while banking via mobile devices is very convenient, it is still important to exercise caution.
