Yep, it’s been a PCI heavy week. Want me to discuss other topics? T and suggest one!

Last week I sat through the Certified Payment-card Industry Security Manager training here in Dallas. The folks at Aegenis planned it at a hotel that happened to be about 10 minutes from my house, so getting there was easy. There were several bigwigs from the information security and PCI industry there with me in the sold out training, and the industry perspectives were valuable.

If you are not an employee of a QSAC and are looking for a GOOD source of training around PCI, data breach laws, and a detailed look into the payment industry, this training is for you. If you opt for all three days of training, you will be taken through the process first as an auditor, then as a manager. The tests are given on the final day.

For those merchants that have been begging for solid, industry-specific training around PCI, this is where you need to go.
