September has been a busy month for Apple. First, there was the massive iCloud hack and then they announced a series of new products. One of the major announcements revealed a new mobile payment service called Apple Pay, which allows Apple users to purchase goods and services at retailers using their iPhones.

Listen to our latest Security Slice podcast and hear Dwayne Melancon, Craig Young and Chris Conacher discuss why Apple Pay can’t be worse than current U.S. credit cards technology, what storing credit card images instead of numbers will mean for iPhone user security and why tokenization is a grey area of PCI compliance.
