Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, today announced that it will co-host a live-video webcast with Vantiv, Inc., a leading provider of payments processing services and related technology solutions for merchants and financial institutions, on Oct. 19. The presentation aims to dispel myths and inform merchants on how point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and EMV fit into the cybersecurity puzzle, plus how PCI compliance is impacted.

According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, retail, restaurant, and hotel merchants suffered the greatest from point-of-sale (POS) intrusions in 2016. And soon, ransomware could hit these payment systems, halting merchant transactions in their tracks and costing large sums of money…from paying the ransom or, if prepared, enacting restoration measures.

Unfortunately, experts at Netsurion and Vantiv often hear, “I’ll switch to P2PE, so I won’t need anything else to protect my business.” Sure, P2PE devalues data, makes it unreadable if stolen and reduces PCI scope—but it is not enough alone.

Cybersecurity is already complex. This common misconception is causing undue frustration and intolerable levels of risk.

During this webcast, participants will learn:

  • How EMV and P2PE impact PCI compliance
  • What are the cybersecurity concerns of merchant businesses, large and small
  • Why it’s important to understand overlapping technology solutions and compliance regulation half-truths
  • How you can leverage practical guidance to implement a reasonable cybersecurity strategy that fits your unique needs
Netsurion and Vantiv will also be taking your questions live on air. To register, see the details below.
