AppSec Updates PCI Campaign

AppSec is announcing an updated campaign to help large organizations accelerate PCI compliance

NEW YORK -- With industry-wide PCI compliance struggling to break 31 percent, Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc) (www.appsecinc.com), the leading global provider of database security solutions, is announcing an updated campaign to help large organizations accelerate PCI compliance.

The new campaign includes a best practices Web event on Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 a.m. EDT with database security expert and distinguished Forrester Research Principal Analyst, Noel Yuhanna. To register, please visit: http://www.appsecinc.com/news/casts/forrester_pci_march2007/. AppSecInc is also providing an up-to-date set of online resources from white papers to downloadable best practice security policies and tools. Armed with this knowledge, organizations can eliminate confusion, achieve compliance, and tighten security in a cost-effective, non-disruptive fashion.

The second in a series of AppSecInc Webinars on PCI compliance, the March 27 event benefits from Mr. Yuhanna’s deep expertise in database controls – which protect data where it lives. He will discuss the factors driving the need for database security and will share best practices, which ensure data privacy and compliance with regulations including PCI. Mr. Yuhanna will be joined by representatives from leading independent audit and risk consulting firm Protiviti Inc. and AppSecInc.

“PCI is about earning customer trust through good and responsible business practice,” said Ted Julian, AppSecInc’s vice president of Marketing and Strategy. “This event and our online resources are focused on enabling businesses to gain a clear understanding of PCI, what it means to them, and how they can implement it efficiently, effectively and where it matters most – in databases where customer information lives. Armed with this information, businesses can immediately make a major impact on their risk posture and create a systematic approach to sustaining the utmost protection and compliance.”

Noted security expert and author, Scott Laliberte, a director in Protiviti’s Technology Risk practice, is also contributing to the event’s discussion. He will provide specific insight into how to address PCI requirements in existing IT infrastructures.
