Last Call @ the Expo standard

Just finished up with the last booth work at the show. Today was fairly slow (as to be expected), though there were still plenty of people coming through. I got to see the VeriSign VIP token work, and that was pretty cool! Hope you stopped by to get your free token! As I was leaving, the last hunters of conference trinket treasure were hurriedly making the rounds before the expo closed. All in all, quite a show. If I missed you this time, I hope to see you somewhere else soon!

The Haps at RSA! standard

Today has been filled with all kinds of activities, including meeting with some customers and vendors. I just finished the first meeting of the NSS Advisory Group and I am very pleased with the direction that it is heading. I think there is a lot of promise there for helping customers figure out which vendors DO solve PCI issues, and which ones don’t. I will be AT THE BOOTH at 10am tomorrow! Please stop by! I have a pretty “Blog This!” button on (Thanks K-Dog!). Also you can follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/brandenwilliams. See you there!

The Cart Before the Horse (and you can too!) standard

Clement James writes about a security expert that slams PCI, stating that the breach in the news “was almost certainly the work of hackers exploiting a single code flaw on internal systems.” The expert goes on to say that “PCI takes a relaxed attitude towards internal machines.” While I agree that there is room for improvement on internal controls for PCI, remember, it’s not designed to protect your entire enterprise. It is a basline, and you should layer security on top. The challenge is this: not until the end of last year did we see a compliance validation rate exceeding 60% among Level 1 merchants. If you make the standard too hard, you will have little or no adoption. You ...
