Hacking Point Of Sale: How Mega Retailers Are Compromised
The recent batch of compromised mega retailers, including Target, Neiman Marcus and Michaels, reveals just how vulnerable payment systems are. Sophisticated tools, strong security policies, and updated regulatory requirements haven't been able to prevent hackers from taking advantage of inherent vulnerabilities in payment systems.
To help us understand how this happens, payment systems expert Slava Gomzin, author of Hacking Point of Sale, joins us for this upcoming webcast. Slava will illustrate how retailers such as Target were compromised, what went wrong, failures in PCI to address all vulnerabilities and how these types of breaches can be prevented in the future.
Attendees will receive a sample chapter of Slava’s book on “Payment Application Architecture,” which provides a detailed overview of how payment systems work, protocols and their weaknesses. Qualified attendees will also earn one CPE credit for their participation.
