The clock is ticking for enterprises that have not yet upgraded their payment card processing systems to be compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.0. As the Jan. 1, 2015 mandatory deadline approaches, there is increasing urgency to not only understand the most important changes in PCI DSS 3.0, but also to be ready for a rigorous QSA assessment against those changes. Since PCI 3.0 is bigger, harder and more expensive than the previous iteration, merchants have their work cut out for them.

PCI DSS founding member, Visa Inc. recently changed its policy on compliance assessments for the PCI DSS. More specifically, Visa decided that merchants who meet a stringent set of criteria including processing 75% of transactions using "Chip and PIN" enabled terminals, may be able to apply for an exemption from PCI DSS assessment requirements. Unfortunately, not all merchants are aware of the change, and fewer understand what it means.

In this special presentation, our expert panel will explain the changes and their implications, and offer a detailed review of PCI DSS 3.0 to help enterprises prepare for assessments and make PCI compliance a whole lot easier.
