Global Payments Inc Data Breach (Part 2 of 2)

Welcome back to part 2 of my  blog series discussing the details of the recent Global Payments data breach. Last week I went over some general details surrounding the original breach disclosure and some of the early information that was available at the time.

On an April 2nd conference call with Global Payments CEO Paul Garcia, incident details differ greatly from the original report disseminated by Brian Krebs. This conference call was closed to the press and was directed towards investors only as Q3 2012 results were also discussed.

You can listen to the full audio from the conference call here:

“The company believes that fewer than 1.5 million card numbers may have been stolen”, stated Paul.

Global Payments Inc Data Breach (Part 1 of 2)

You thought 2011 was the "Year of the Data Breach"?

Think again.

The Global Payments Inc data breach puts 2012 on the map in a BIG way.

So big, actually, that I had to break up this blog into a 2-part series to adequately cover all of the details.

In what has already become a solid runner-up for another “Year of the Data Breach” award, 2012 continues to deliver on the cyber crime front. Atlanta-based Global Payments Inc, one of the largest payment processors responsible for the transactions of more than 1 million merchant and business locations around the globe, has been breached. The official breach disclosure was self-reported on March 30th by Global Payments and confirmed shortly thereafter by major card brands MasterCard and Visa. Many believe the disclosure was...

Remote Access Security Tips

With the continuing advent of new technologies and ways of communicating, it is important to remember that with new technologies come associated new security threats. One of the newer, most utilized technologies to date in the business environment has been remote computing. Remote access has quickly become a wide-spread technology used throughout multiple industries in the marketplace today. The inherent efficiencies realized through remote computing have been tremendous. The ability to work remotely, access secure work networks, and hold meetings from any Internet-connected device, however, has been both a blessing and a curse. With the advent of mass-marketed downloadable programs such as pcAnywhere and GoToMyPC, remote access has quickly become the “weak link” in otherwise...

HIMSS 2012 Observations

What do you get when you bring 37,000 attendees together with 1,100 healthcare IT vendors? HIMSS 2012 of course.  Given all the activity in the health IT sector, this year's conference was the most overwhelming to date.  The explosion in social media was obvious throughout the conference.  In fact, the hashtag #himss12 set a world record for healthcare conference tweet volume on February 12th with 6,438 tweets.  I guess that explains what all those vendors were doing on their phones as I passed their booth!  Here are a couple other observations from this year's conference.

Enthusiasm About The Future
