As consumers, we expect to be able to use our debit cards, mobile wallets and wearables to transact where and when we want. In any given moment, Capital One must make millions of decisions on whether or not to approve a transaction, and if something doesn't look right, thanks to advanced technology, we can notify you within seconds. We will present how big and fast data and other technology makes it possible to give customers the freedom to transact when and where they want and the peace of mind in knowing we're watching out for them.
