Grave Danger! Is there any other type of Danger?

This is a unique presentation as it incorporates ethical behavior with the development of Security Education, Awareness and Training Programs. By doing this it can assist in reducing risk to individuals and companies but also provide guidance on proper ethical behavior in various situations.

PCI COMPLIANCE: Do I really Need to Be Concerned?

PCI should be getting easier, but as technology changes and as organizations out-source processes, risks to data are still reality and the risks are not necessarily decreasing. Organizations need to be aware of the on-going compliance requirements and areas of focus that may need attention. Acquiring banks, processors, the card brands and customers have an expectation that organizations are focused on protecting card data. This session will review PCI requirements that cause “pain”, as well as tips for improving your card data footprint.
