The modernization of the data center and move to the cloud—in combination with increasing consumer pressure to protect cardholder information and an expanding corporate focus on data protection—can make the process of PCI compliance daunting. The good news is that help is available and can make things easier for CISOs trying to balance security and compliance with business agility.

In this session we will explore:
• Critical issues facing organizations related to PCI compliance
• Key ways to accelerate PCI compliance, regardless of where the in-scope applications and data reside (data center, cloud, or both)
• Customer case studies illustrating how other organizations have streamlined the compliance process
