Why are we organizing a Payment Village?
Payment technologies are an integral part of our lives, yet few of us know much about them. Have you ever wanted to learn how payments work? Do you want to know how criminals bypass security mechanisms on Point of Sales terminals, ATM’s and digital wallets? Come to the Payment Village and learn how. We will teach you how hackers gain access to banking endpoints, bypass fraud detection mechanisms, and ultimately, grab the money!
Who is this for?
Whilst hacking isn’t child’s (cat’s) play, we believe that everyone can learn a little bit more about payments. For that reason, we are making the Payment Village accessible to all. For DEF CON 29 the payment village will be delivering all content online!
