The session is a unique opportunity to hear multiple viewpoints on what you need to do to attain PCI and how just being compliant doesn’t ensure security, may put you at risk and leave your organization exposed legally. You’ll hear how seasoned executives use PCI as a basic checklist to strengthen their overall security posture.

“The drumbeat of companies that have been breached but compliant continues as hackers seek out the weakest link, which increasingly is becoming the remote location with organizations more distributed and using un-managed devices that often test infrequently,” said Rasch. “As someone who helped draft what became the PCI DSS regulation, living in such a dynamic time, I look forward to moderating a panel of such distinguished CISOs and hear what they are doing to ensure compliance while maintaining security.”

Key topics will include:

  • Time Warner CISO Jamil Farshchi on the ideal PCI environment.
  • CUNA Mutual Group CISO Nikk Gilbert on challenges in meeting PCI across a distributed organization.
  • Pulte Financial Services CISO Robb Reck on additional security frameworks.
  • Verizon QSA Aaron Reynolds on difficulties facing organizations.
