Taking the BDSM out of PCI-DSS through open source solutions (Erin Jacobs, Zack Fasel)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

At some point as information security practitioners, we all face those god-awful three letters. PCI. Yes. It sucks, it's not cheap, and Yes, It's not "real security". But if you or your client is handling cardholder information, you must SUBMIT! Err… comply….with over 200 requirements. But how does a technically-minded and security-driven badass meet the letter and intent of PCI without pulling their hair out, spending thousands on vendor solutions that don’t provide holistic security, upsetting management, nor just “check the box” and move on?

Zack and Erin will explore their tried and tested open source solutions implemented by organizations from the small/mid-sized to some of the largest providers in the world to address the requirements of PCI DSS while substantially improving security. This isn’t your grandpa’s high-level theoretical overview, but a deep technical dive with specific configuration guidelines you can implement tomorrow.

You too can better devote resources to skilled talent over ineffective or exorbitantly priced products and let’s start fixing things.
