Payment Security is more than PCI DSS. If PCI DSS is protecting the card holder (and in turn the card issuer), how are you protecting your institution from data compromise or financial loss and the resulting reputational fall out?

The WPM Payment Security Conference is the leading Payment Security event for the higher education sector. Industry experts shared their insights on the latest emerging threat landscape, how to embed payment security into BAU, payment security implementation best practice and more. 

Network with peers to share experiences of how to get buy in and resource to better understand your payment security requirements, and leave with the knowledge and tools you’ll need to ensure you are proactively moving beyond PCI DSS.

Who Should Attend

Payment Security is no longer a compliance box that needs to be ticked. It’s a critical strategy on its own and needs buy in and commitment from across Finance, IT and Information Management and at all levels of the institution.

2022 Payment Security Conference

What our attendees think

"A wealth of relevant information and the only event where University staff speak freely about their PCI and fraud experiences."

"As always an extremely useful conference with talks from the security experts, and those in similar positions to ourselves."

"Really great speakers with wow factor information."

"Informative with good tips on how to succeed with PCI compliance."

"Excellent insightful conference.."

"It was really valuable to network, discuss issues with colleagues and hear some of the latest news within the security sector."

"The conference was fantastic. Highly valuable information to take back and use as part of a wider review on our own processes."

"Always a great opportunity to network, keep up to date with future changes and best practice and pick up little nuggets of information that can help with what we are trying to achieve."

“If you are responsible for Payment Security this is unmissable!”

“Really useful and relevant presentations that give an insight into payment security and why this is so important.”

“This was my first ‘in person’ conference with WPM and the variety of speakers and wide range of experience was amazing. The insights provided and ‘take aways’ from the two days will benefit my organisation.”

“The event is very useful for those who work with PCI DSS. It gives us the opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments and an opportunity to network with staff members from similar institutions who are carrying out similar roles.”
