“Welcome to the Wild, Wild West of security.”
That’s how guest host Adam Goslin opened the latest in Online Tech’s “Tuesday at 2” webinar series, PCI DSS Guidance for Mobile Security.
The COO of High Bit Security lent his expertise to an hour-long presentation on PCI mobile payment guidelines as they relate to PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) and PA DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standards) compliance.
“The mobile arena is one that has been exploding over the last couple years and is sure to provide non-stop challenges to those organizations that are interested in making available mobile payment applications to support or supplement their existing communication with their customers,” Goslin said.
Data security for mobile payments continues to evolve while transactions are anticipated to hit the $1.3 trillion mark by 2015. In February 2013, the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) released a document covering security guidelines for merchants accepting mobile payments to protect credit card information.
In the webinar, Goslin reviews – for merchants and developers – the highlights and pitfalls contained within that supplement, designed to educate merchants on the factors and risks of using mobile devices, along with other challenges related to PCI compliant mobile payment processing.
Goslin breaks down the documentation scenarios that the PCI guidelines cover and defines the security risks of the mobile platform in general and to the payment transaction process specifically. He also dives into merchants’ responsibility as it relates to the security of mobile devices used for transactions.
In a section of the webinar discussing the implementation of a secure payment solution, Goslin says, “you want to make sure you’ve done everything in your power to make that solution as secure as possible,” and discusses each step in that process.
Goslin also covers tips to merchants for selecting the right payment-acceptance solution.
