Thanks to all who attended our Cybersecurity After Hours Drinks at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, DC! The event was held at Supra, a “rustic-mod” DC hotspot lauded for its Georgian cuisine and wines, and was well-attended by privacy and cybersecurity professionals from the finance, healthcare, retail, and technology sectors.
Guests learned about Payfone’s unique ability to verify identity in a completely private manner through our Zero-Knowledge architecture and network of authoritative identity verifiers. As one attendee remarked, Payfone’s capabilities sit right at the intersection of privacy and cybersecurity, enabling enterprises to protect themselves and their users against attacks without needing to pass personally identifiable information.
The specialty cocktail of the evening was our “Payfone Privacy Punch”, a refreshing elixir featuring Chacha Georgian vodka, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, pomegranate juice, tarragon “Lemonade” & orange zest. Much-needed after a long day of seminars!
Guests noshed on Supra’s signature khachapuri breads and “Makho” spreads, garlicky grilled chicken with ajika and tkemali, eggplant stuffed with walnuts and cilantro, Elarji corn meal and sulguni cheese croquettes with almond sauce, stuffed cremini mushrooms, and traditional Imeruli cheese bread.
We hope that everyone enjoyed the evening’s festivities and lively conversation around the future of privacy and cybersecurity. Thank you to IAPP for helping us to bring this event to fruition!

Payfone held our very first ‘Wine & Time” Executive Experience last week in Atlanta. The event, held at City Winery in the popular Ponce City Market complex, was a great success, and was well-attended by Atlanta-area executives interested in learning how time and trust are the new KPIs reshuffling the Fortune 500. The evening was filled with delicious food, lively conversation about creating fast, frictionless and fraud-free experiences, and, of course, free-flowing bottles of excellent wine!
The event was held at City Winery, a unique bar and restaurant with an on-site winery.
The evening began in the “Den” where attendees heard from 2-time TEDx-speaker and Olympic Silver medalist John K. Coyle (‘The Time Guy’) about the science behind how humans perceive time, and how brands can apply that science to vastly improve the customer experience. John drew the crowd in with a vivid story about his Olympic speed skating days, and then touched upon how mere milliseconds can decide the difference between winners and losers – whether you’re competing in sports or in business.
Rodger Desai, Payfone’s Founder and CEO, and Kathleen Waid, Payfone Senior Vice President of New Business, gave guests an overview of Payfone’s mission of allowing brands to take back their customer experiences from fraudsters by delivering digital trust through our Trust Platform™ and Trust Score™.
Afterwards, attendees spread out into the Den landing and had the chance to receive their own personal Trust Scores from Atlanta-based Sales Engineer Caitlyn Livingston to see how the technology works.
Every attendee went home with a personal gift and a signed copy of John K. Coyle’s book, Design for Strengths.
Thank you to everyone who attended! It was an immense success and now we’re busy planning our next ‘Wine & Time’ event.
