Payment Services Directive (PSD2)
Opening the doors to a secure business

Designed to improve choice for customers, create more competition and stimulate innovation, PSD2 will drive fundamental change in the way we bank. The move to the digital marketplace is no longer an aspiration, but is a necessity for financial institutions to stay relevant or competitive. As part of this evolution, new risks need to be considered in relation to regulatory compliance, privacy, liability and a new attack surface for cyber criminals. These risks are not necessarily greater but different, and need to be treated as such. Success in this new era will be dictated by banks and FinTech’s which maximise API integration with third parties in a secure manner. This paper explores some of the fundamental changes that underpin PSD2 and the security model that is changing with it.

In this new episode of An InfoSec Life, Robert Feeney, a senior security consultant at Edgescan, speaks to fellow security researchers and security consultants about what they can do to differentiate themselves from the pack; how can they excel in the industry. In addition to speaking to his peers, Robert shares a lot of solid information that should help the managers of these individuals working in the industry as well.

Of the topics presented, events and organizations were a key part of the conversation, especially given that this chat took place during OWASP AppSec USA 2017 following his presentation on successful automated application scanning techniques. Robert highlights that it is important to join groups like ISACA, ISC2, and OWASP and to also attend their events: national, regional and local events. Robert also suggests that it’s important to move beyond basic event and conference attendance and to consider speaking at these events as well.
