PCI DSS: A Cost Effective Approach
Date: Tuesday, April 21, 2009 - 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Venue: Cisco Systems, Inc., 111 Wood Ave. S., 2nd Floor, Iselin, NJ

Presentation #1: “PCI and Beyond - A Cost Effective Approach to Data Protection’”
Abstract:
The faltering economy has not slowed the alarming rate of attempted and successful data theft. In fact, it might actually be spurring data thieves to try even harder. Unfortunately, the faltering economy has also meant deep cuts in IT budgets. Although IT budgets are being reduced, the need to protect sensitive data has not gone away. IT security professionals are frustrated by this. How can security be provided in a budget constrained environment? A solution is needed quickly for this critical business issue.

The session will review in detail the different options for data protection strategies for PCI DSS. This presentation is focused on answering the question “How can IT security professionals provide data protection in the most cost effective manner?” This presentation also includes an anonymous case study about an Enterprise Data Security projects, at several companies, including the strategy that addresses key areas of focus for file and database security encompassing all major platforms. This session will also present methods to protect the entire data flow across systems in an enterprise while minimizing the need for cryptographic services.

This interactive, educational presentation will:

1. Discuss data risk factors and present a risk adjusted methodology for determining appropriate solutions
2. Review case studies in protecting PII and PCI data throughout the entire data flow
3. Show how to prevent internal and external attacks against data
4. Review and position different solution alternatives including enterprise data encryption and key management
5. Discuss how to balance security, performance and other operational aspects
6. Cost Effective Protection of data in production environments, test environments and outsourced/offshore environments
7. Cost Effective Protection of data in virtualized environments and cloud environments
