Virtualization technology introduces new risks that must be taken into consideration and assessed when moving cardholder data to virtual environments, but because virtual technologies can vary greatly, no one-size-fits all guide to Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance exists.
Sword & Shield Director of Risk and Compliance Jason Riddle will be on hand Tuesday, July 17 at the VMware Users Group (VMUG) in the Nashville area to give an overview of virtualization and PCI. The meeting will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Comdata building in Brentwood.
Recent revisions to the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) – known as PCI DSS 2.0 - have provided some degree of clarification on how the requirements apply to virtualized technologies. Additionally, the PCI Security Standards Council has released an information supplement which provides guidelines for implementing virtualization in a PCI compliant environment. The presentation will cover both the PCI requirements and real-world use cases with VMWare Admins, Security Admins, and PCI Auditors on hand to field questions.
After his overview, Riddle will also participate in an question and answer session for attendees. Sword & Shield and Comdata are sponsoring the event.
