Tripwire Announces Webcast on Anatomy of a Retail Mega Breach
Security leader to provide inside view of high-profile retail data breaches and techniques retailers used to thwart them
PORTLAND, Ore. — June 30, 2014 — Tripwire, Inc., a global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, today announced a new webcast titled “Hacking Point of Sale: Anatomy of a Mega Retail Breach.”
As recent retail mega breaches have demonstrated, point of sale and payment systems create unique security challenges for retailers. Over a third of data breaches in 2013 were the result of point-of-sale intrusions. According to Verizon’s 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report, 85 percent of last year’s point-of-sale breaches took weeks to detect, yet retailers are confident in their ability to detect data breaches.
Join retail security expert Slava Gomzin, author of “Hacking Point of Sale,” and Ken Westin, Tripwire security researcher, for a behind-the-scenes look at the causes, solutions and attack paths used in recent retail mega breaches.
Webcast attendees will learn:
- Detailed attack scenarios behind recent high-profile retail data breaches.
- Tools and techniques attackers use to target retail payment applications and systems.
- Why PCI-compliant retailers are still vulnerable to breaches and what they can do to protect themselves.
Attendees will receive a sample chapter of Slava Gomzin’s book titled “Payment Application Architecture.” Qualified attendees will earn one CPE credit for their participation.
The webcast will take place Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT.
