Stay Classy, San Diego!

Stay Classy, San Diego!

What was popular in April? April was a rough month for many folks (as it historically has been). We have had crazy weather all over the US, and I was able to experience a few new cities with El Wiforino. Thank goodness for the great food choices in London! I’m so glad that was our last stop.

Here are the five most popular posts from the last month:

  1. The Only Customer Service Script You Will Ever Need. This is the post that keeps on bringing people back! Maybe spring break travel issues? Check out this diversion from security that will make you think about how you interact with your customers.
  2. How Starbucks is Revolutionizing Mobile (Micro) Payments. For the fourth month in a row, this post is really keeping people moving. I even had an industry colleague talk to me about it as we were buying coffee at said coffee chain. You know how you see those crazy fools that pass their phone in front of some magical sensor at Starbucks and never seem to pull out their wallet, yet walk away with coffee? That is really part of a huge master plan to reduce the impact that payments has on the organization. Check out the scenarios discussed!
  3. The Definition of Cardholder Data. Another oldie but goodie for the seventh month in a row. It’s still on people’s minds, probably because they are looking for ways to drop systems out of scope of PCI DSS, or because they are looking at the new eCommerce guidance from the Council. Hopefully this is a good benchmark for you.
  4. PCI Requirements Review. Here’s a quick review on Patching and IDS. Back in the top five again, so I wonder if this post with the previous has signaled assessment season may have kicked off early this year.
  5. A Few Tips for Getting Ahead of PCI Compliance. The great folks over at Tripwire caught me in the hallway right before my book signing with Anton. Check out this quick video for some timely tips on getting ahead of PCI Compliance!

Thanks for stopping by!
