From Target to JPMorgan Chase, the past 12 months have seen one massive data breach after another, and for many organizations payments security remains a serious liability.
In this webinar, CEO Bob Carr at Heartland Payment Systems shares how Heartland was able to navigate through what was in 2009 the largest breach on record. Topics of discussion will include:
How to get in front of cyber-attacks before they happen;
The changing landscape in Payments Security, and how it affects financial institutions;
The role of end-to-end encryption, tokenization and EMV.
While under direct attack, businesses are looking for solutions to mitigate data breaches. But the landscape for payments security is changing fast. This webinar will provide clarity on the different technologies and standards related to payments security, as well as a view forward and how these technologies are likely to play out. Until recently, many companies opted to keep their old payment hardware and encrypt payment card data in databases. But the move to EMV creates an opportunity to change out the credit card hardware and while doing that, many merchants and processors are taking a data-centric approach to encrypt card data from the instant it is read through to the processing host, followed by PAN tokenization in the back-end, for protection in post-authorization processes.

From his start as an idealistic entrepreneur operating on a shoestring, Carr founded Heartland Payments Systems, one of the nation's largest debit and credit card transaction companies. He also earned a national reputation as a trailblazer for ethical reform of the payments industry. He led Heartland from a modest start-up with 25 employees in 1997 to a FORTUNE 1000 company that employs 4,100 colleagues and serves more than 400,000 business and educational locations nationwide. After a remarkable recovery from the 2008 international hacking conspiracy, Heartland emerged as a champion in the fight against cybercrime. The company's Merchant Bill of Rights has been lauded for its transparency in payments processing. Carr is the founder of the Give Something Back Foundation, which provides financial support to college students. He is the author of, "Through the Fires: An American Business Story of Turbulence, Triumph and Giving Back (Amazon, 2014)."
