ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwired - October 31, 2013) - Outsourcing credit card data to the cloud creates significant security risks. Cloud users and cloud service providers need to clearly understand their roles and responsibilities when it comes to protecting this data.

'Navigating PCI Security Mountains in the Cloud' will launch at 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Nov. 6 (register here) and will be presented by Yaeger, PCI Security Standards Council General Manager Bob Russo, Brightly Managing Director of Research Brandon Dunlop and Catbird Chief Technology Officer Randal Asay.
