Leading Qualified Security Assessor and European-Based Analyst Firm KuppingerCole to Discuss Best Practices in Tackling PCI DSS 2.0 Compliance

Agiliance® Inc., the leading independent provider of Security and Operational Risk Management solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced that it will host a webinar with leading European-based analyst firm KuppingerCole titled “The Clock is Ticking: Rethink PCI 2.0 Compliance.” The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, November 3, 2011, 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. CET.

On January 1, 2011, the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) Version 2.0 took effect. The new requirements represent a daunting task when it comes to improving an organization's existing security policies to include virtualized environments, policy governance, risk remediation, and 100 percent asset coverage. While the media has been very light on detailing how significant the changes in PCI DSS 2.0 are and how they impact organizations, the PCI Security Standards Council must have recognized the significance of these modifications, since they provided a timeline that allows organizations to work for a full year before having to demonstrate compliance with PCI DSS 2.0. However, if organizations haven’t started to prepare for PCI DSS 2.0, time is running out soon.

In the KuppingerCole / Agiliance-hosted webinar, KuppingerCole's senior analyst Dave Kearns, Tom Arnold from Payment Software Company (who is one of the leading Qualified Security Assessors in the world), and Torsten George from Security and Operational Risk Management pioneer Agiliance will reveal the impacts of PCI DSS 2.0 on an organization’s strategy, information technology, and security operations as well as outline ways to enable to certify faster and at lower cost.
