Future Glimpse of Targeted Developments
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2019 / DIGATRADE FINANCIAL CORP (OTCPK:DIGAF), www.DigatradeFinancial.com a financial technology services company, and its subsidiary Securter Systems Inc., have today provided shareholders with new insights into the company's plans for its fintech business, with a focus on anticipated Digatrade/Securter corporate developments within the vital and growing financial services sector.
Financial losses from fraudulent credit card and debit card transactions suffered by institutions and consumers have grown to over $24 Billion annually. Contrary to public perceptions, this problem is still growing rapidly, not diminishing. These staggering proceeds of crime are not enthusiastically reported by the world's payments industry because institutions seek to preserve public confidence in the integrity of their systems. Counter-measures are required continuously to keep up with perpetrators.
In Q1 2019, Digatrade announced that it would complete the development and launch of new fintech software and hardware through its Securter Systems subsidiary in order to slash this online credit card fraud, globally. The techniques embedded in Securter's patent-pending fintech portfolio represent powerful advances in the protection of credit cardholders' personal information. Securter converts the typical online transaction authorization process from an exercise in data harvesting into a new arrangement that is far more secure. Once deployed, Securter authorization technology will render obsolete the current consumer practice of giving credit card numbers, as well as related financial identity data, to millions of online merchants, in billions of online transactions per year. Vast repositories of stored information describing credit and debit cards, and their owners, have emerged. These are tempting targets for organized hacking via increasingly large scale attacks. Typical online merchant security is outdated because hackers always have the advantage in the current "data collection and storage" model.
In Q2 2019, Digatrade/Securter entered into its first affiliate partnership agreement with an international payment services provider ("PSP") that processes over $50 Billion in transactions annually. The purpose of the agreement is to identify what joint steps can be taken for Securter to integrate, activate and monetize its fintech into the world's credit card and debit card payments systems. Trillions of transaction dollars now flow through the world's payments systems at the rate of thousands of transactions per second. This generates a vast fee-basis for participating institutions and their service providers to share. Digatrade/Securter's business model taps into this lucrative and growing torrent of fees, 24/7, globally. The identity of DIGAF's partner will be disclosed when current confidentiality conditions have been met.
In Q3 2019 Digatrade announced significant additions to its management and advisory team, as the company prepares to engage with senior parties in the industry, for collaborative business development.
To help Digatrade shareholders understand the direction of Digatrade/Securter strategy in coming months, management has now outlined further developments that Digatrade is targeting for the benefit of future DIGAF shareholder value. Each of the key areas of operation listed below will generate a related flow of events as DIGAF moves steadily toward the launch of its fintech. A supplementary PowerPoint has been added to the Digatrade Investor website under SEC Fair Disclosure Guidelines: https://digatradefinancialinvestor.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Digatrade-Securter-Fintech-Overview-Sept-10-2019.pdf
Targeted Digatrade/Securter Developments in Q4 2019 and Beyond:
- More key management/advisor appointments to provide Digatrade with world-class perspective, experience and expectations for successful Securter partnership operations within the industry;
- Implementation of new in-store and online shopping incentive system(s) that will allow Securter to start its commercial marketing and sales activities with consumers in mind. The purpose will be to engage with merchants and online shoppers for awareness-building and revenue;
- Progress toward the development of policies for the engagement of governments (as users, funders and regulators);
- Presentation of an operational Securter system and pilot program to significant additional PSP partner candidates who are senior in stature within the world's payments systems;
- Approval of/by international consulting organization(s) for service bridges between international groups and applied Securter initiatives;
- Selection of the successful manufacturing bidder as Securter's hardware partner;
- Revealing collaboration-platform allies who will stimulate tech integrations;
- Identification and disclosure of the most suitable 3rd party cryptocurrency exchange platforms for integration into Digatrade/Securter merchant services infrastructure.
Digatrade/Securter's Director of Partnerships and Sales, Mr. Rishon Talkar, adds that Securter is a success waiting to happen, if industry needs are any indication: "My career has focused on taking organizations from being in an early state to being multiple-process regimes. I have both witnessed and stimulated growth in the payments processing sector through innovative business development techniques. I know what the industry needs from prospective partners, and what the available rewards are. Securter, through its carefully assembled management team will be well-connected to leading financial institutions including banks, credit card issuers and payment service providers at the level of Fortune 500 fintech sophistication. Securter's patent pending technology is a fintech winner. I'm chomping at the bit to discuss the candidates with whom we are speaking, but confidentiality constraints are vital at the present moment. I can't wait for 2020. We will have made enormous progress by then. Our team is committed to it, and our prospective customers need us. That's a great position to be in."
