Recorded:   September 16 | 2014      Play

2013 was the worst year yet in terms of data breaches, with over 740 million records exposed, and 2014 is shaping up to be more of the same. Security analysts estimate the costs of the data breach that hit U.S. retailer Target are approaching half a billion dollars for the company. The total cost of the breach including losses incurred by banks, consumers and others–could easily reach into the billions of dollars, and the incidents continue in the food industry, state government, and other sectors.

With the Target incident seen as a watershed many financial institutions are planning to begin issuing EMV cards in the next two years, although many are still hesitant to commit to EMV because of uncertainty around retailer adoption of chip card point-of-sale terminals, questions about the viability of the business case for migrating from magnetic stripe cards to chip cards, as well as unresolved issues related to regulation and support for merchant routing choice. Meanwhile, the official release of PCI DSS v3.0 is here, delivering a fresh set of regulatory concerns for consumer-transacting businesses of all types.

Clearly, traditional IT defenses are no longer working. But you can take control. Join us as we discuss key lessons learned from the recent breaches, and the latest developments in payment security.
