Ensuring Privacy and security in payment processing
Speaker – Natacha Rousseau, Co-founder of RousseauLinares, a Public Relations agency focused on blockchain & emerging technologies
Topic Abstract – The problem is finding and implementing a security system that enables merchants, and properly authorized third-party organizations like insurance companies access to the data without creating openings for potential security risks.
1) Why are passwords not enough
The simple combinations of letters, symbols, and numbers that can be cracked by computers in short time spans. Thanks to botnets, it is even possible to leverage millions of computers in an effort to find one password that will enable data thieves access to materials that, by both law and ethics, should never see the light of day.
2) Enter Blockchain
3) Blockckchain + cryptography leverages public and private keys to secure information alongside a publicly available registry that is managed in an automated and decentralized manner.
