Addressing Ongoing Security and Compliance Requirements
Organizations continue to face threats to their brands, reputations, and profits from attacks on their information systems. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is designed to protect credit card information. During my five-year tenure at Cisco, I’ve been focused on PCI.

The second part, intended for burgeoning Python programmers, explores some of the inner workings of the tool.
