I am presenting at the National Retail Federation’s 100th annual convention in January 2011. I’ll be talking about the past, present, and future of data security, and how new threats and technologies affect payment card security. I am co-presenting with Peter Engert, who is in charge of payment card acceptance at Rooms To Go furniture, and Robert McMillon of RSA. Robert works with RSA’s tokenization product and manages the First Data/RSA partnership. We’ll each give a small slide presentation on what we are seeing in the industry, then we’ll spend the latter half of the session answering questions on any payment security issues you have. The bad news is that the presentation is on Sunday at 10:00 AM, on the first full day of the conference. The good news is both my co-presenters are very sharp guys and I expect this to be a very entertaining session.

If you are not attending the conference, I’ll be around Sunday night and Monday morning, so shoot me an email if you are in town and want to chat! Look forward to seeing you.
