The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC) is an open global forum for the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination, and implementation of security standards for account data protection. According to the PCI SSC, 2012 is a critical year in the standards development process that hinges on feedback from the PCI community.
Getting the latest information about the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) is vital as products and technologies continue to change at a rapid pace. Being part of the conversations, networking with like-minded professionals, and interacting directly with payment card brands are just a few of the benefits of attending the sixth annual PCI SSC North American Community Meeting. The meeting runs September 12—14, 2012 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The meeting spans two full days of knowledge sharing, networking, and learning; including keynote presentations from industry experts, PCI case studies, and technical sessions. The momentum from last year’s meeting is continuing this year with attendance projected at over 1,000.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to provide feedback on PCI standards in preparation for release of the next versions of the PCI DSS and PA-DSS in 2013, as well as share your ideas and suggestions with the PCI community. Topics to be discussed this year include the latest PCI Council initiatives, including the Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) program.
