Security risks associated with using credit and
debit cards to make online transactions

PODCAST #2


Overview

Using a debit or credit card or any kind of plastic money comes with its set of risks. In fact, stealing credit card data was the first big trend in the history of cyber-attacks. We’ve come a long way since then and built solid defense systems. But with e-commerce taking off in a big way in the past few years, usage of credit and debit cards to make online transactions has grown sharply. This exposes us to a new level of risks and threats, which is only increasing as more and more people go cashless. It’s time we examined them with the people who know all about this and get a wider perspective.
