J Wolfgang Goerlich will be presenting: New Ways to Steal, New Ways to Protect
Emerging payment systems means new opportunities to make old mistakes. Apple Pay and Google Wallet has taken us cardless and wireless. Starbucks invented its own espresso-driven gift cards. Bluetooth payment beacons are taking us cashierless. Yet amid the encryption and tokenization and PCI DSS compliance, somehow, criminals still manage to eke out a living defrauding consumers. (And by eke, we mean the estimated $3 trillion dollar cybercrime industry.) This talk will review several emerging payment systems and describe the fraud and the flaws. With that as a framework, we will propose first principles for securely designing new systems and sidestepping the same old mistakes.
