Stay Classy, San Diego!

Stay Classy, San Diego!

What was popular in July? We wrapped the month with some fantastic presentations at Blackhat, Defcon, and BSides. I am enamored with the fun stuff browsers can do (and not so fun things to the people that ineptly run them), and approaching application security with a renewed vigor.

Here are the five most popular posts from last month:

  1. PCI Security Standards go to Three Year Lifecycle. More than twice as popular as its nearest challenger, this post details some of the pros and cons to the new three year lifecycle that all of the standards will adopt starting with the pending release.
  2. Tokenization and Chargebacks. The NRF making is more waves, and Visa released new guidelines. Check out this post to see what is missing from Visa’s new report.
  3. PCI Doesn’t Take Vacations. But we do! And while returning from my vacation I saw something shocking in my taxi cab. This taxi service decided to warn consumers about the insecurity of using credit cards with their company instead of actually addressing security.
  4. 2010 Verizon Business Data Breach Report Released. Amidst the flurry of BlackHat and Defcon last week, Verizon released an updated version of their data breach report. This post outlines some key takeaways.
  5. PCI Council, How About a Map? We’re not just aimlessly wandering in this whole data security with credit cards journey, are we? Well? Wouldn’t it be nice if the rest of us could see the map as well?

Thanks for stopping by, San Diego!
