Theme: Payment Strategies: The Game Has Changed  
Date: October 11-12, 2017
Location: San Diego Sheraton Hotel and Marina

Whether you are the CEO, CIO, CISO or someone working with suppliers, the challenge of protecting data from a security breach has become an enterprise wide top priority and responsibility. Even if you are a consumer conducting business online, you have to be concerned over the security of payment information.

From the water cooler to the boardroom, daily conversations discuss the most recent incursions, the staggering numbers, and speculation about the thieves’ next target. Recent attacks against Target, PF Chang’s, Michaels, and Sally Beauty Supply stealing millions of records are constant reminders of the daily struggle against hackers seeking to steal payment information. Hackers--including criminal organizations--are taking advantage of unprotected and poorly managed payment systems. As we know, an entire underground economy has sprung up to provide hackers with the tools needed to steal payment information. Organizations must implement a payment strategy to ensure the security and protection of payment systems and information. Users and consumers must be aware of the different payment strategies used to protect information.
