Vegas for ETA, onward to TRISC!!

I’m excited for this next week of travel- the Electronic Transactions Association is hosting their annual expo in Las Vegas this week. I was there last year, this is a conference focused on the true payment industry (read: not a whole lot of security folks- these are the banks and payment technology organizations)

The PCI Security Standards Council will be meeting to discuss the upcoming PCI Quality Assurance Program, as well as the content and timeframes around the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS). It will be a great time to reconnect with friends at the Payment Brands, while discussing the upcoming PCI-DSS update, as well as the guidance language clarifying Requirement 6.6.

Many of my clients and peers are eagerly awaiting the release of some of this guidance, I certainly look forward to hearing guidance from the Council on the spirit and intended outcomes of these updates!

I have an evil 6 A.M. departure from Vegas for meetings in Dallas, TX on Thursday and Fort Worth on Friday. I have a lazy weekend of riding planned before rushing off to join RSnake in San Antonio, Texas for TRISC ( the Texas Regional Infrastructure Security Conference.) I will be presenting a variation on Jer’s Website Vulnerability Statistics talk, and looking forward to Robert’s “Why I don’t use web-app scanners … all the time” talk.

If you’re in the neighborhood, come support the conference!
