Re: Data Breach
It might be something to watch but you can be sure theives will be watching as well. Apple better make sure this system is bullet proof or there will be major problems for them.

Re: Data Breach
True! But i cannot imagine cash ever going away even if Denmark has decided to try that route. These epayment schemes are another way for companies to shave off a % for themselves. They are much like the thieves who used to clip coins long ago.

Re: Data Breach
The problem with the payment industry as it currently stands is that every retailer has already purchased the hardware to scan magnetic strips.  Upgrading POS systems to allow NFC or other methods has a cost attached and who knows how fast retailers will upgrade.

Risk Management
Brian, great article. Difficulty exists for large and small companies or retailers to balance cybersecurity needs of the customer and business with those of an organization that is so dispersed....a balancing act faced by everyone to include the individual consumer conducting e-transactions or banking on-line. Articles like yours help to highlight the issues but we need to counter with recommendations on approaches to fixes.  This sort of places 3rd party vendors in a bad light and I am certain not all 3rd parties are knowingly negligent or want to be the subject of someone's next breach article. You do provide recommendation that the company/retailer spend more time reviewing SLAs and vendor cybersecurity hygiene...but there is a lot more to do.

Re: Data Breach
Apple Wallet is definitely a payments technology to watch. AppleInsider last week reported on Apple's application for "Methods for Adjusting Near Field Communications Circuitry during Mobile Payment Transactions" to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In includes some technical details about how the payment system works with NFC protocols and the hardware, and software safeguards required to perform secure transactions without physical connection. You can check the AppleInsider piece here.

Data Breach
You sort of wonder how these types of leaks are going to affect the use of Apple Wallet once that gets up and running. I do not use payment apps on my phone or even allow companies to store my credit card info on online accounts so I have been lucky so far but you just never know how intrusive these theives are.
