PCI Security Standards Council Announces Program Highlights for Inaugural Asia Pacific Meeting

The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), a global, open industry standards body providing management of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), PIN Transaction Security (PTS) requirements and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), today announced further details on sessions planned for its first ever Asia Pacific event in Singapore on Thursday, June 14 at the Hilton Singapore. The full agenda is now available on a newly launched website dedicated to the event: https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/site/singapore-2012/agenda.shtml

Increasing payment security is a global endeavor. In its 2012 Global Security Report, Trustwave reported 19 percent of data breach investigations globally were in the Asia Pacific region. Approximately 90 percent of these investigations were undertaken as a result of payment card data compromises. It’s against this backdrop that members of the payments community in Asia Pacific are meeting for a full day of active discussion and collaboration around improving payment security globally. Program highlights include:

  • PCI Standards Update and Feedback Forum
    With the formal feedback period on the latest versions of the PCI Standards just completed, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and provide additional input to the Council.
  • Technology Update:
    The Council will provide the latest updates on key technology areas the Council and its stakeholders are working on, such as mobile payment acceptance security, point-to-point encryption, cloud computing and tokenization.
  • Creating a Security Lifecycle:
    This practical session will provide recommendations on how to plan ahead for PCI and build a security lifecycle into the business.
  • Presentations from Regional Forensics Experts:
    Featured sessions will include the latest in breaking forensics, security trends and technology from expert keynote speakers.
  • Networking Opportunities for APAC Stakeholders:
    Attendees will have the chance meet and ask questions of representatives from the world’s largest associations, card brands, financial institutions and peers from their own industry in this exclusive gathering of global payment security experts.

“This is a critical year for all stakeholders, as we work to revise the PCI Standards and continue to evaluate and deliver guidance on technologies that offer PCI DSS scope reduction for merchants,” said Bob Russo, general manager, PCI Security Standards Council. “As a global organization with a global mission, the participation and perspectives of those in Asia Pacific is essential to helping us increase payment security both in this region and around the world. I look forward to this meeting to help us better work together to ensure not only that our standards remain critical resources for protecting card data, but also that organizations in this region have what they need to implement and maintain strong security programs.”

Attendance at the one-day event is complimentary and open to all PCI stakeholders – from Participating Organizations and assessors to card brands and those interested in payment security.

In conjunction with the event, two training offerings are available, allowing attendees to make the most of their travel time and budgets:
