Skip to 0 minutes and 10 secondsWelcome to week two. This week we're looking at the safety of payments and exploring the conflict between security and usability. Dr. Martin Emms leads this week with a look at how new payment technologies and fraudsters battle to stay ahead of each other. We'll look at some examples of recent research in Newcastle University in mobile security, and we'll end with some practical advice for day-to-day life.
Welcome to Week 2: payment security
This week our focus is on online payment security and will be led by Dr Martin Emms.
First of all, what do we mean by payment? The Oxford English Dictionary defines a payment as :
A sum of money (or equivalent) paid or payable, esp. in return for goods or services or in discharge of a debt; wages, pay.
Does this definition hold for all types of payments from primitive beginnings to cryptocurrencies?
