On Thursday, April 6th, the Strauss Center is hosting cybersecurity expert and former Reddit Chief Information Security Officer, Allison Miller, as she discusses cybersecurity in the realm of financial services. Cybersecurity in the financial services industry is a fascinating tangle of liability, compliance, incentives, salty tears, recriminations, and courtroom drama–and some technology, too. It’s only getting more complicated as new financial products and entities join the mélée (think: blockchain). In this session, payment security veteran Allison Miller will talk about what really happened behind the scenes with the creation of standards such as PCI-DSS, how emerging technologies clashed with old problems in the sector, where we are today, and how to find out the real cyber games being played in this ecosystem.

The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required. Lunch is provided. If you have questions, please contact Susan Crane at
