ControlCase Webinar Brings Clarity to PCI Compliance in the Cloud

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 24, 2012) - Businesses looking to comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) in their cloud-based applications will gain a new resource on November 14.

ControlCase, a leading provider of compliance, information security and risk management solutions, will host a new webinar, "PCI Compliance in the Cloud," designed to bring clarity to the complex and often confusing process of achieving compliance in cloud infrastructures.

Moving computing resources to the cloud can bring tremendous benefits to organizations. However, when that data involves such sensitive information as credit card numbers, businesses face significant challenges in protecting this data. Although PCI DSS spells out clear security requirements for storing, transmitting or processing sensitive data in traditional formats, these requirements become a bit hazy when the transaction occurs in the cloud.

How does an organization apply these traditional PCI DSS measures when the organization does not own or control the physical infrastructure of the transaction?

ControlCase will tackle this critical question in their upcoming "PCI Compliance in the Cloud" webinar. Attendees will gain clarity on three major points on PCI DSS compliance in cloud-based settings: what PCI DSS compliance looks like in the cloud; what challenges are associated with PCI DSS compliance in the cloud; and how to adapt traditional PCI DSS requirements to the cloud.

The webinar will also briefly discuss the specific solutions ControlCase offers to help businesses achieve PCI compliance in their cloud-based applications. ControlCase's Compliant Cloud solution is fully integrated within their comprehensive Compliance as a Service (CaaS) platform, providing a cloud-hosted solution with all the necessary products and services required to keep cloud infrastructures secure and compliant.

The "PCI Compliance in the Cloud" webinar will take place on November 14, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Registration for the webinar is open and free of charge to all businesses. Attendees will also receive a free PCI Compliance in the Cloud Checklist following the event.
