Today marks the launch of a new book published by the New York Stock Exchange and Palo Alto Networks called, "Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers."

The real debate is, will EMV adoption do anything for card data security?
Andrew Barratt, Coalfire’s Managing Director of Europe, explained some lessons learned from the United Kingdom. He sat down with John Rostern, executive vice president, to discuss the EMV liability shift.
