Art of Compliance – Converging PCI Security Science and Art
When most people think about Payment Card Industry security, they think of architecture designs and security standards documents to help merchants protect cardholder data.
As the Cisco retail team worked on our Cisco solution for PCI DSS 2.0, we decided to combine the Science of Compliance (Cisco solution and the Validated Design Guide) with the Art of Compliance, a series of artistic work interpreting security in a new light.
Working with Adam Hagen, Cisco Global Integrated Marketing Communications Manager, Cisco worked with a series of artists in multiple disciplines including paint, digital, sculpture and video, and asked them to interpret security through their eyes.
The result is a series of artwork, some of which are incorporated into the Cisco PCI DSS 2.0 Design Guide, plus an online gallery is located on http://www.cisco.com/go/pci2art and on Cisco Retail Flickr
The artwork will be on display at the Payment Card Industry Council North America Community meeting September 20-22 in Scottsdale Arizona as part of Cisco and our partners HyTrust, VCE and RSA sponsorship of the event.
To learn more about some of the artists and their interpretation, we filmed some of the artists with their creations while it was installed in the Cisco San Jose campus for a limited run.
In this video exerpt with Lance Jackson in front of “Secure Card”, he talks about how security protects credit cards as part of consumers’ inner expressionistic self.
Sue Averell in front of “Network Neighborhood”, she talks about mapping computers and hard drives into a urban circuit board motif.
Lance Jackson talks about the Pop art inspiration for “Stacked”, part of the “Art of Compliance” series inspired by PCI Compliance and security
The artwork will be on display at the Payment Card Industry Council North America Community meeting September 20-22 in Scottsdale Arizona.
This is part of Cisco and our partners HyTrust, VCE and RSA sponsorship of the event and there will be a silent auction for some of the art for charity donation.
