The reason is simple, with financial transactions the ability to succeed with fraud often comes with high earning capability. The criminal community have access to modern automated tools, and they work collaboratively. When one gang succeeds, they rapidly share on the dark net the secret of their success.

As new technologies emerge, so do new cybercrime attack vectors. Data encryption and security is increasingly important for enterprises of all sizes.

All stakeholders are working together to provide a security solution that protects customer information because this entire system is only as strong as its weakest link, being its employees and the underlying technology protecting it. At the heart of this payment processing security landscape sits a Hardware Security Module (HSM). Most likely [...]
