Form3 delivers cloud-based connectivity, payment processing, clearing and settlement services to a wide range of regulated financial institutions. Every transaction in fintech represents real money from real people. Protecting the integrity of service communication here is key. In this talk, Edward describes how Form3 built a payments platform that is reliable, safe, and resilient.

Warning this talk contains live demonstrations!
