Security Audiocast: Black Hat Cookies, Online Threats and Contactless Payment

In our Retail Week In Review audiocast for Aug. 8, our panel looked at: Consumer Reports story that U.S. consumers lost more than $7 billion over the two years to viruses, spyware and phishing schemes; the Black Hat conference and its demo of how easily cookies can be captured online and used to fake identification; and the security issues surrounding contactless payment, as MasterCard announced this week a sharp expansion of its PayPass contactless card program.

Panelists this week were: Mark Rasch, former head of the U.S. Justice Department's high-tech crimes unit; Motorola's Chris Hinsz, who is the newest member of the PCI Security Standards Council; and Dave Taylor, president of the PCI Security Vendor Alliance, whose dayjob is with Protegrity.

Site visitors can listen to the full 30-minute discussion or to panel introduction plus just the conversations about Online or Contactless Payment or Cookies.
