Stay Classy, San Diego!

Stay Classy, San Diego!

What was popular in May? We had Facebook all over the news (again) with its IPO woes, including lawsuits and 30% of the value of the stock eroded, the Call for Papers for RSA Europe closed, and RSA China opened, EMC World festivities in Las Vegas, and a whole host of product announcements to boot!

Here are the five most popular posts from last month:

  1. Visa Kills PCI Assessments and Wants Your Processor to Support EMV. Another month, another winner! Is this the end of PCI Assessments? Visa threw out some timelines and program details last year that you need to know about.
  2. Top 10 PCI Requirements for Interpretation. I haven’t quite gotten ten yet, but I’ll start working through the ones I have. In the meantime, if you want me to do a detailed interpretation, suggest it in the comments of that post!
  3. Will the New QIR Program Move the Needle? A guest post from one Steve Levinson that asks the question we’ve all been dying to know: now that the Council has the integrator/resellers in their sights, will we see fewer small merchant breaches? Check out the analysis!
  4. Fun with Password Managers. It’s time someone started taking his own advice around here! So now that I have, what can I tell you about my experience and what I learned? Check out details here.
  5. Top Five PCI DSS Mistakes that Lead to a Breach. For the third month in a row, this one is on the top five! I wrote this blog post after speaking to several insiders about the challenges small companies face when it comes to complying with PCI DSS. Many of them look at the various SAQs and panic! So while I won’t endorse not complying with the standard, what are the top five things that cause a compromise? Read this to find out!

Thanks for stopping by!
