Amex data security expert to hold London seminar to answer specific PCI questions.
PCI DSS has become one of the most commonly used acronyms across the UK today. While it can be said that organisations have moved on from the initial fact finding and planning that characterised PCI projects in 2007 and have begun implementation, many have dealt only with the easier tasks associated with infrastructure control.
A much more difficult issue is getting the company at large to buy into the culture of security that is required to obtain compliance. Indeed, ensuring ongoing vigilance and retaining the security posture necessary to retain certification is the real problem.
As the PCI projects have unfolded, organisations are challenging the directive with some real life issues. Questions like ‘We are the service provider and store data on behalf of the client. However the client is the merchant as they take the money. Do we need two separate accreditations? Whose legal responsibility is it if the Visa client's data is compromised?”
Recent research carried out by security software vendor Metacompliancet has highlighted the areas of the PCI directive that are proving difficult. Namely Multi Channel Regulation, Multi Region Compliance and Managing Third Parties. Questions around these areas can be complex to understand, implementing them in fast moving retail environments can be a nightmare.
American Express Data Security Expert, Branko Lolich, is teaming up with Metacompliance and Security Risk Management Ltd to address many of these issues first hand. In a one hour seminar, attendees will have an opportunity to pose their real life PCI implementation challenges to subject matter specialists. The aim is to get communication on the issues flowing between attendees and the panel, and to provide meaningful information to the Compliance audience who are charged with PCI implementation.
In the lunch time seminar in Central London on 11th June, Branko, along with Paul Brennecker formerly of Barclaycard, will answer delegates PCI related questions. The seminar will begin at 12.30 with lunch, before panelists open the floor to questions. Places for the event have been limited to ensure full interaction with the panel.
