Navigating PCI Security Mountains in the Cloud

Webinar description: Organizations outsourcing card data to the cloud face significant security risks. As soon as an organization adds other players to the offsite card-management mix, ensuring compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard becomes increasingly challenging.

Storing, processing and transmitting cardholder data in the cloud brings the cloud environment into scope for PCI DSS.
