2nd CACR Information Security Workshop
Tom Greco, ABA
ABAecom - Enabling E-Commerce Opportunities for the Financial Services
My presentation will discuss the reasons ABAecom was established,
the Digital Certificate and PKI strategies we are pursuing, our
relationship with Digital Signature Trust Company, and the projects
we have underway (including the Policy Advisory committee and our
involvement with Entrust Worldwide).
Thomas J. Greco presently serves as the President for the American Bankers
Association's electronic commerce subsidiary, ABAecom. In his duties with
ABAecom, Mr. Greco will be developing and promoting various electronic
commerce opportunities for the Financial Services Industry. In particular,
ABAecom focuses on preserving and enhancing the role of the financial
community in an on-line world. This will include the involvement of banks
as trusted entities using digital certificate technology to vouch for the
electronic identity of businesses and individuals.
Mr. Greco previously was the Associate General Counsel for ABA and is an
expert on the Uniform Commercial Code and payment system legal issues.
He is the representative to the Advisory Group for the Banking Industry
Technology Secretariat (BITS) and staffed the Association's Payment System
Task Force. That group issued a report in September 1996 on the role of
banks in the payments system of the future and specifically recommended
that the Association consider being an issuer of digital certificates.
Mr. Greco received his BA from University of Maryland, Magna Cum Laude,
and JD from the Catholic University of America.
