About the Series

The rise of the digital economy means that more payment and personal data is being provided to merchants and enterprises than ever before – not only at the point of sale, but also online through checkout forms, healthcare portals, and bill payment. And cybercriminals have taken notice.

Today’s hackers don’t care about company size or industry. They target vulnerable systems to breach and steal unprotected payment and personal data. The fraudulent use of consumer information is both lucrative and endless, from unauthorized credit card purchases to identity theft to insurance scams. Every company accepting payment and personal data needs a holistic security strategy to thwart hackers – because it’s not a matter of whether your business will be attacked, but a matter of when.

Join us for our Spring Security Webinar Series where you will learn from our cybersecurity practitioners and thought leaders about the resources, technologies and strategies to protect your consumers’ personal and payment data, while also meeting global and U.S. data privacy regulations, including GDPR and CCPA.
