Visa's chief enterprise risk officer Ellen Richey says while she's grateful when government approaches her about potential cyber security issues, most data breaches are identified by banks and payment systems, like Visa. Former deputy secretary of Homeland Security Jane Lute adds, the awareness of the financial sector is incredible. “In the sector of critical infrastructure, not all are up to speed as the financial sector ... there’s still a lack of knowledge, and a lack of practice.”
