Bank Info Security
As new payment options continue to emerge via mobile phones and internet of thingsdevices, the PCI Security Standards Council is broadening its security efforts, starting with a new standard for contactless payments coming early next year, says Troy Leach, PCI SSC's chief technology officer.
"We have the challenge of an ever increasing attack surface - the potential devices themselves that could be attacked; but at the same time, we have so many new security controls that are at our disposal," Leach says in an interview with Information Security Media Group. "For example, we now have real-time analytics authentication that can happen for every transaction because everything is connected."
