To manage the increasingly diverse digital landscape, IT and security managers need to move beyond usernames and passwords, and expand their use of multi-factor authentication (MFA) to help provide secure and convenient access to the critical data and systems users need. On this webinar our panel of experts will address how secure authentication can help enable GRC across the digital ecosystem, and they will share tips on:
- Securing access at all points across applications, devices, users and environments.
- Sharing insights across security systems to strengthen security.
- Collecting and analyzing information to stop attacks.
- How MFA can transform secure access—to any application, from any device, anywhere, at any time.
- Strengthening identity assurance with privileged users.
Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. At APACS he started the move to confront the reality of the threat to payment systems and the implications this has on any risk and security decisions taken. He was instrumental in helping the industry coordinate the response to the wave of e-banking attacks that started in 2004, and the development of a card based customer authentication strategy to protect e-banking channels. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. This included contributing to the strategic development of the Council through representing Visa Europe at the PCI SSC's Executive Committee, as well as the technical development of the standards. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe. Colin was responsible for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. He has now built on this experience by learning first-hand what PCI DSS means to merchants through his experience at Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Applying PCI DSS to probably one of the most complex industry verticals and one where it is almost impossible to spend money as a customer without using credit cards! He is now working as a freelance consultant helping retailers and service providers solve their cyber security and payment security compliance dilemmas.
