"Payment Security: Securing innovative payment technologies & achieving PCI compliance"


This presentation will discuss how to secure payment-related data and maintain compliance, through:

       Minimizing the risk of storing sensitive data in your cardholder data environment. Securely leverage cloud-native tooling and maintain secure key management.

       Encrypting sensitive data with strong cryptographic protections and ensure proper client / server negotiation.

       Ensuring the security of existing and new software with a more effective approach to the product security lifecycle. Utilize penetration testing to validate that known vulnerabilities are mitigated.

       Validating the efficacy of “Zero Trust” segmentation controls across application and network layers.

       Maturing governance, risk, and compliance for connected-to-service providers, regardless of whether they are required to formally validate compliance
