The Risk of a Payment Security Breach in the Tolling and Transportation Industry – A Thinking Highways Roundtable Discussion
Thinking Highways presents the latest in its series of Roundtable Discussions, this time focusing on a subject that cuts across a wide variety of the multiple disciplines that make up the ITS sector. How can we prevent payment security breaches in the tolling industry? What are the current trends in security breaches? What particularly vulnerable areas are under attack? What is the cost and consequence of a payment security breach?
Bob McQueen, founder of 0Cash Company and Thinking Highways’ US Bureau Chief, puts the questions to a panel of experts who between them have several decades of experience in the tolling sector. Independent consultants Simon McBeth (formerly with Sanef Operations) and Tim McGuckin (founder of the OmniAir Consortium), D’Artagnan’s Steve Morello, Ed Mulka of JAFA Technologies and CardConnect’s chief security officer Rush Taggart tackle this thorniest of issues and discuss what further measures the industry can take in order to address the worrying increase in data and payment security breaches – over 5000 data breaches have been recorded in the US in the last 10 years.
With such a complex subject to address the panel will be reconvening in the coming weeks to further discuss matters such as PCI compliance, toll agency outsourcing and lessons learned so look out for part two shortly.
