WASHINGTON — A panel of experts in the international trade of stolen consumer data said Wednesday that payment card data has largely been eclipsed as the most valuable in the international marketplace.

Kurt Baumgartner, principal security researcher at Kaspersky Lab, an international cyber security firm, told attendees at Visa’s Global Security Summit at the Ronald Reagan Building that payment card data from European breaches is worth four or five times more on the international market than data from U.S. breaches, but that overall payment card data has been surpassed in value.
