Join Jon Butler, Nils and Matteo Michelini as they talk mPOS security and Cyber Risk.
We are proud sponsors of this years 9th annual ITWeb Security Summit taking place on the 27th & 28th May at Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
The summit promises to bring together international and local security professionals, practitioners, industry experts and analysts to share experiences, acquire knowledge and gain an understanding of the key tools, techniques and strategies needed to safeguard organisations’ most valuable asset – information.
3 of our team have been asked to present at the security summit, more details on their discussion topics can be found below.
Mass-malware, targeted attacks, advanced persistent threats, state-sponsored attacks, cybercrime…the threat landscape is rapidly changing and companies are facing big challenges to align their security operations strategies in order to mitigate cyber risks.
The session will cover:
Mobile Point-of-Sale (mPOS) devices represent the next step in bringing the processing of card payments to individuals and small businesses.
Typically, these devices are used alongside tablets and smart phones to process card transactions. However, with the questionable state of mobile device security, how do mPOS devices fare in keeping sensitive customer data safe?
This talk will provide a comprehensive overview of the security of the current mPOS device market and detail the approach taken by MWR when assessing these devices. We will demonstrate several of the vulnerabilities found during this research – these will show how an attacker can completely undermine the security of the majority of the devices on the market today.
