    Heartland Payment Systems CEO Robert Carr is outspoken about the massive security breach the company suffered on his watch in 2008, exposing 130 million debit and credit card accounts. But at a time when comparable breaches have cost some CEOs their jobs, Carr is still calling the shots at the payment processing company -- largely because he stepped up to the huge security challenge, leading Heartland's adoption of end-to-end encryption, tokenization, and EMV chip-and-pin payment card technology. "We took a position in 2009 that we're not going to clam up and try to point the finger at somebody else," he says. Carr has watched the recent wave of retail breaches and sees a common theme: Many companies haven't made the right choices or spent enough money on the right security solutions, and some of them are paying the price. In this keynote presentation, Carr will lay out a CEO's view on selecting the right security solutions and justifying the necessary investments.
