Are You Really PCI DSS Compliant? Case Studies of PCI DSS Failure!
Jeff Foresman, Founding Partner, Pondurance
Tuesday, May 6, 2:10-2:55pm (Track 2)

Many organizations have achieved PCI DSS compliance but as past breaches have shown, some companies are not really compliant. This presentation is a case study covering many years of assessing companies that thought they were compliant, but did not meet the requirements as they believed. We will review failures in scoping, segmentation, storage of cardholder data, security testing, logging and development. We will also discuss problems organizations will face with implementing the new PCI DSS v3. Each case study will include what should have been done to meet compliance.

If you’ll be at the Central Ohio InfoSec Summit, come say hello to us at the Online Tech booth. We’ll be speaking on May 5th at 3:20pm:

Securing the Cloud in a Regulated World – April Sage, Director, Healthcare Vertical

Securing the cloud for one organization is hard enough. A cloud architecture that can fit within the performance, security, and compliance constraints across many organizations and industries requires a few novel approaches – and investments. For one, a positive partnership with auditors. Second, security and compliance driven culture, not checkboxes. Third, serious technology investments to enable key functions like encryption and remote backup to play nicely together. This presentation will share a behind the scenes look into the architectural decisions behind a cloud capable of protecting sensitive data in the healthcare, banking, and other regulated industries.

We will be present the whole show, exhibiting our secure hosting solutions. Hope to see you there!
