With This Bad A Recession, Can Retailers Afford PCI?

If you're going to be at the NRF show in Manhattan next week, please drop by our Monday (Jan. 12) panel on security, featuring security execs from Reitmans, Beall's and Big Lots, along with the former head of the U.S. Justice Department's computer crime and StorefrontBacktalk's own David Taylor. Evan Schuman will moderate.

The panel discussion, scheduled to start at 4:30 PM in Hall A, Room 1A, will open with a question about whether retailers, in this bad a recession, will need to rethink how to fund—and possibly whether to fund—PCI efforts. But the conversation will also cover non-IT security issues, such as crowd control, looking at very different Black Friday disasters involving Wal-Mart and Best Buy, plus loss prevention strategies.
