Payments Podcasts Security

A review of the Chipotle data breach, plus the bitcoin bubble

John Best tackles the recent Chipotle security incident, and provides an update on cryptocurrencies and why they’re increasing in value.

In the latest episode of the BIGcast, I provide an update on some of the projects I’ve been working on lately, and discuss what you should know about the recent Chipotle data breach and why this is important to you. What are the direct implications for your credit union, and your members? I include a suggestion as to the best way to protect your digital interchange.

Also in this episode, you’ll find an update on cryptocurrencies and why they are experiencing an increase in value since the beginning of the year, and why you should be keeping an eye on the blockchain-based currencies.

Plus, an update on the CULedger initiative to build a credit-union-based permissioned, private distributed ledger, including how a blockchain-based identity platform addresses some of the current weaknesses in the financial industry, and why credit unions are in a unique position to succeed with CULedger.

You can listen to more episodes of BIGcast, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
