ISSA National Capital Chapter March meeting topic:

The Payments Ecosystem: Security Challenges in the 21st Century
by Phil Smith III of HPE Data Security

Abstract

Credit and debit cards—whether they use magnetic stripes, EMV (“chip” cards), or near-field communication—are well-established in world commerce, and the majority of enterprises process them in some part of their operations. But how does this ecosystem really work? What are its vulnerabilities and security gaps, and how can we defend them? And what do mobile payments systems, bitcoin and its clones, and other innovations mean for the future?

As story after story in the press has demonstrated, simply keeping your physical card secure is no longer sufficient —and neither is protecting the IT perimeters of card processing systems. Millions of card numbers have been breached at all layers of the system, despite companies’ best efforts to secure at a system level. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) lays down excellent guidelines to help secure data, but many breaches have occurred despite passing PCI DSS compliance assessments.

Come learn about how the threat landscape is evolving, what the attackers are doing, and how merchants and processors are reacting to stay ahead of the attackers.
