Re: NOT blaming card issuers
@Kelly  Oh yeah, I know. And maybe he's just protecting his own. But it's worth noticing whenever anyone says "it's not their fault, it's ours."

Re: NOT blaming card issuers
Yes. But remember, Heartland isn't a retailer--it's a payment processor, so it's more in the financial services side of the world.

NOT blaming card issuers
It's interesting that he says that his company needs to take responsibility, instead of putting blame on card issuers for not using newer technology. Because the National Retail Federation takes the opposite approach, that's for sure:  https://nrf.com//news/four-big-lies-about-data-security

Re: What about transparency?
It was a very candid -- erh...transparent -- interview. Hopefully after he reads it, he can give a little value add and comment about his views on transparency.

Re: What about transparency?
Good question, Marilyn. Unfortunately, I didn't get to ask him about that, but I wish I had. He had some very frank insight, as you can see, about the problems retailers are having that are leading to breaches.

Good interview Kelly. Curious to know whether the transparency came up during your interview. Did Carr have any advice for retailers about disclosure after the breach is discovered or reported?

Wow
Well I gotta say, I'm surprised. I've yet to hear a CEO with so much understanding of security technology. Heck, I've met CIOs with less understanding.
