Speaker: Troy Leach, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), PCI Security Standards Council

This session will provide an overview of what’s ahead with the release of the latest version of the PCI DSS mobile standards, as well as how to use the new PCI SSC mobile resources to ensure compliance. It will also shed light on today’s mobile payment environment as well as the associated risks and challenges when it comes to securing payment card data. Read our PCI Compliant Hosting white paper or our Mobile Security white paper for more about compliance and IT.

The session will also address the relationship between PCI standards and EMV (the global standard for credit and debit payment cards based on chip card technology; EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, the original developers of the EMV specifications in 1994). Additionally, the discussion will cover new technologies available to reduce security risks and how to take advantage of them when planning for PCI in your business.

Other sessions focus largely on the theme of tackling mobile device security and mobile payment processing with The Future of Device Security and Card Brand Panel, featuring experts from all four card brands.
