Many security professionals have a love/hate relationship with PCI DSS. While people inside the industry proclaim their undying love or mortal hate towards this Data Security Standard, many organizations are using PCI to build their entire security programs.

This educational Webinar has been exclusively designed to address and help you understand:

  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS or simply PCI) is intended to lower the risk of card transactions by motivating card-accepting merchants to improve security of their environment. Its guidance only applies to card holder data environments. However, since the standard covers twelve domains of prescriptive security guidance, some organizations have already started to use it as a base security framework to quickly build out a security management program. Will it work?
  • Is it a good idea or a really risky one? The presentation seeks to answer these and other questions and also continue the industry discussion about broader applicability of PCI DSS and its future as a force (whether positive or negative) in the security industry. 
  • PCI -- Best Practices and Caveats that are applicable for broader security.
  • Introduction to automated tools to collect, manage evidence for PCI compliance and implementing security practices.
