A JOURNEY TO PROTECT POINTS-OF-SALE *CANCELED* (SPEAKER UNABLE TO ATTEND) presented at BlackHatEU 2014

by Nir Valtman,

Summary : Many point-of-sale breaches occurred in the past year and many organizations are still vulnerable against the simplest exploits. In this presentation, I explain about how points-of-sale get compromised from both a retailer's and a software-vendor's perspective. One of the most common threats is memory scraping, which is a difficult issue to solve. Hence, I would like to share with you a demonstration of how it works and what can be done in order to minimize this threat. During this presentation, I will explain the long journey it took me to understand how to mitigate it, while walking through the concepts (not exposing vendor names) that don't work and those that can work.
