It looks like they are going with AI based sevices for this program. I would be extremely leary of the possiblity for massive privacy abuses by these stakeholders. That's even if they can manage to keep it secure from the hands of criminals and state sponserd hackers. My biggest fear is that this technology would ever fall into the hands of any government.  This identity managerment sceme seeks to create a Universal Online Identiy for everone that uses thier products and services. So basically these corporations will OWN our Cyber-DNA. Very Dangerous concept. I would feel much more  comfortable with a blockchain type solution that could at least protect some sort of anonimity and privacy. It would most likely be a much more secure soolution to the problem of identity managment.

I'm just wondering if these companies will be utulizing blockchain technology in this project. Seems to me like it would be a no-brainer. Ah, but what do I know?

PCI and security
I wonder how this will affect PCI and how other CC companies will adapt the new technology.  Guess it all depends on royalties and such.  Then there is iPhone versus the google phones to content with.  This looks like it might be an uphill battle.  Unless they get everyone to play the game it doesn't do the end user much good,

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
