Anyone know I didn’t write a book with Anton Chuvakin last year?  If not, I’ll tell you ALL about it.

OK, seriously, I know I’ve talked a lot about it here.  If you have not bought it and are still skeptical, go check out the sample chapter we have posted on CSO Online.  This chapter, entitled “The Art of the Compensating Control,” is an expansion of the article of the same name.  There are some case studies at the end, and more details on compensating controls.  If you are like most people dealing with PCI, you probably have lived the compensating control euphoria turned nightmare turned compromise.

If you still have not bought one and want a chance to win one, be in Dallas on March 25 for the DFW PCI User’s Group Meeting!  All the information on the event is here.  I will be giving a controversial, and hopefully exciting presentation that night, so come on by and heckle me from the peanut gallery!
