Visa Europe revealed important stats about the usage of Contactless Cards. Poland, Spain and the UK use this payment methd the most, with UK usage growing by 300% year over year.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a worldwide recognized set of requirements created by the PCI Standard Security Council for organizations that store, process or transmit payment cardholder data. PCI DSS version 3.1 was recently published as a sign of promptness from the PCI Council (SSC) towards the increasing amount and variety of data breaches and to help organizations and security experts fight the danger coming from attackers.
Do you want to learn more about PCI DSS? Are you looking for the latest technologies and most qualified experts in the PCI DSS landscape to support your business and protect your customers? Then you should join the PCI London 2015 event in June. Advantio's team will be there and we are looking forward to it!
The best thing we can do to understand more about this event is to take a look at the official website which describes it as follows: "PCI London is the UK's largest gathering of payment risk and security professionals who are tasked with securing payments systems, protecting cardholder data and meeting PCI DSS compliance requirements".
The event was started several years ago and is recognized internationally as a prestigious venue attended by anybody who is in the PCI DSS business as well as those who are striving to achieve PCI DSS Compliance and maintain it continuously.
The event will be attended by hundreds of different organizations belonging to various industries. Acquiring banks, Payment Service Providers (PSPs), eMoney and Financial Institutions, Franchisers, Large Merchants and other types of entities will be represented at the event. The participants are some of the most trusted and most interesting people in the PCI Industry, from very technical roles to more management-related ones. This event is the place to be right before the summer break.
The event features a tight agenda packed with interesting speeches, education sessions and real life case studies. There will also be strategic talks and technical breakout sessions with over 450 senior PCI DSS practitioners sharing their experience.
The agenda will cover the following aspects:
Advantio Security is a team of experienced QSAs. Our experience in the field has allowed us to learn PCI DSS requirements upside down and today we have a very good knowledge of this standard. Additionally, we believe that the PCI SSC is doing great work in trying to create awareness and to spread the concept of security in every industry that handles cardholder data. It’s a customer-focused approach, and we like it.
At the same time, the PCI DSS is a complex standard with a 360 degree view on each aspect that can endanger the security of a company and consequently their customers. It is an evolving standard with a great focus on the vulnerabilities and weaknesses, a methodology to promote better practices and understand how to keep cyber criminality away as much as possible.
Advantio Security will be at PCI London to listen and learn, but also to speak and hopefully teach something. We won’t be alone as we will be supported by one of the greatest speakers and most experienced people in the IT Security industry, Neira Jones. She will be with us during the whole event and she will also be our speaker during the education session that we have reserved.
Neira Jones will take the audience through an interesting session called "Next generation PCI DSS Compliance Management Portals".
Neira’s contribution is a key interpretation to the portals landscape; she will take us through some history about PCI DSS Management products, explain the benefits that they can bring for various actors and types of organizations and describe what an excellent portal should be able to deliver. Here is an extract from the agenda as it is also published on the official event website:
