ControlScan (controlscan.com), the leading provider of PCI compliance and security solutions exclusively focused on small merchants, announces Joan Herbig's appointment to the Electronic Transactions Association's (ETA) Risk and Fraud Committee.
"We are very fortunate to have someone of Joan's background and reputation join our committee," said Victoria Strayer, committee chair, ETA's risk and fraud committee and senior director, enterprise business compliance, TSYS. "Since ControlScan is exclusively focused on helping smaller merchants achieve PCI compliance and become more secure businesses, Joan has a unique perspective on this segment of the market and its impact on the broader industry. As Chair of the Technology Association of Georgia, Joan also understands how to get things done on a grassroots level, which is critical for our committee."
ETA's Risk and Fraud Committee monitors risk, fraud and PCI compliance-related issues in the industry and recommends related best practices and other risk mitigation strategies. Deliverables take the form of white papers, articles/publications, educational programs and Web-based resources. The committee may also be called upon to assist with ETA's outreach efforts to other organizations involved in risk and fraud management (e.g., national/state law enforcement agencies).
"I am looking forward to participating on the Risk and Fraud committee," said Joan Herbig, chief executive officer, ControlScan. "My key objective is to help make complex issues simpler to understand, particularly for small companies who are struggling to understand and prove compliance with PCI standards."
Joan's committee appointment was effective on December 22, 2008 and will run through June 30, 2009.
