But the specifics of PSD2 regulations are months from being released, so PSD2-compliance is still being defined with broad, fuzzy strokes. So, what do we know? As we’ve stated before on this blog, stronger authentication is at the heart of PSD2, and enterprises are sharpening their focus on risk. The companies with stand-out PSD2 messages were talking about flexibility. 2018 will come with a need to have systems that can adapt to new threats at scale.
