Stay Classy, San Diego!

Stay Classy, San Diego!

What was popular in September? The PCI Community Meeting in Scottsdale was one big highlight! I spent a week in AZ dealing with all manner of PCI-related topics. And we also saw Oracle’s CSO go out on a limb she probably shouldn’t have, especially in light of the MySQL defacement that happened last week. Be sure to check out all my “Conversation” interviews!

Here are the five most popular posts from last month:

  1. PCI Community Meeting Day 1 Observations. This month is all about PCI, and specifically the community meeting and things leading up to and following. What was Day 1 like? Check this post for a preview of the social-media heavy meeting!
  2. PCI Community Meeting 2011, That’s A Wrap. Thank you to Gene Kim for doing SUCH a good job with live tweeting the events! Also, if you want to know the good, bad, and ugly, read this post to hopefully see what next year’s meeting should be like.
  3. PCI Coucil Revokes QSA Status (Finally?) Second month in a row in the top 5! Check out the comments for the exact process by which a QSA’s status can be revoked. It had to happen SOME time. With QSA popularity at an all time low, it looks like the Council finally took action against a QSA. See the details here, including some instructions on what to do if this was your QSA.
  4. Last Word on the Visa TIP. I had several posts about this over the month, including playing both sides of the argument (that’s really fun BTW). Read here for the final word on what it means to you.
  5. PCI Community Meeting Reviews from the Field. I’m always a huge fan of “Don’t believe me, listen to what these guys have to say.” That’s what I did here. Totally raw, unedited stuff sans attribution. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!
