Audiocast: The World's Worst Kept Secret: Contactless Is As Insecure As Everyone Feared

When a group of university-based scientists decided to test the security of contactless credit cards, even they were unprepared for how remarkably non-secure they'd be. That was the backup for the highlight of this week's StorefrontBacktalk Week In Review show, featuring panelists Patti Freeman Evans, from Jupiter Research, Paula Rosenblum, from the Retail Systems Alert Group, Greg Buzek from IHL, former federal prosecutor/security expert Mark Rasch and Jessica Bryan from Gomez, along with special guest Kevin Fu, Computer Science Professor at the University of Massachusetts and the chief author of the contactless payment report. StorefrontBacktalk Editor Evan Schuman moderated.
