Tizor Systems Offers PCI Best Practices Seminar

Educational Online Event Features Advice From VeriSign's Leading PCI Assessment/Global Security Consultant

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - June 14, 2007) - Tizor Systems, the leading provider of enterprise data auditing and protection solutions for the data center, today announced a June 19, 2007 online seminar entitled "Data Monitoring for Cardholder Data Protection: Best Practices for PCI Compliance." This online seminar featuring Branden Williams, VeriSign, Sr. Consulting Manager, PCI Practice Lead, CISSP, CISM and Bill Bartow, Vice President of Product Management for Tizor, will review PCI best practices and provide detailed insight into what PCI assessors are looking for when it comes to achieving PCI compliance and cardholder data protection.

Data breaches targeting credit card numbers are on the rise. Despite efforts by the payment card industry, including the development of the Data Security Standard (DSS), a set of requirements designed to help merchants and other businesses protect credit card transactions and card holder data, up to 70% of level 1 and level 2 credit card data handlers are not PCI compliant.

The DSS mandates the protection of cardholder data stored in databases and file systems. The issue is that the technological diversity of enterprise data centers and the myriad of approaches to protecting data are creating huge implementation challenges.

"Although the credit card industry has done a commendable job of creating data protection standards, implementing the right PCI compliance program is still a fairly daunting challenge for many organizations," said Joel Rosen, president and CEO of Tizor Systems. "This seminar will give an inside view of what PCI assessors are looking for and provide insight gleaned from leading companies on how to use a combination of technologies to achieve PCI compliance."

Seminar Highlights:

--  A review of recent updates to the PCI DSS standard and what they mean
    from an implementation standpoint
--  Insight into what assessors look for during PCI assessment activities
--  A look at PCI best practices used by leading companies
--  Input on how to develop a layered data protection program -- including
    when and where encryption and data auditing fit into the PCI compliance
