Angadi will moderate the panel discussion entitled: EMV and Navigating the Liability Shift.

Angadi, who has an extensive background in payment security and solution integration, works with gateway providers, processors, payment hardware vendors and payment security companies to define solutions specific to hotels, casinos and other hospitality venues. His expertise spans the unique challenges related to payment security, including gateways, point-to-point encryption, EMV and mobile wallets.
“We’re delighted that Agilysys is participating in this year’s Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention,” said NIGA Executive Director Jason Giles. “NIGA attendees will have an opportunity to find out more about the company’s software solutions and services at our popular IT exhibition, which accompanies the conference. Agilysys is a technology partner to many of North America’s most successful tribal gaming properties, and we look forward to hosting them.”
