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. The 2013 meeting will focus on the updates to core PCI standards: PCI DSS, PTS PA-DSS.

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 seventh annual PCI SSC North American Community Meeting. The meeting runs September 24–26, 2013, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The meeting spans two full days of knowledge sharing, networking, and learning, which includes the following:

  • Keynote presentations from industry experts
  • PCI case studies
  • Technical sessions

The momentum from last year’s meeting is continuing this year with attendance projected at over 1,200.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear the latest and provide feedback on PCI standards, as well as share your ideas and suggestions with the PCI community. Topics include the latest Council and community initiatives from our exploration of the role of PCI standards in new payment paradigms to special interest group projects.
