PCI DSS: Has your QSA thrown you under a bus?

Presented by

Erik Petersen, Managing Director, Dell SecureWorks

About this talk

After working with hundreds of organisations striving to achieve PCI compliance, we understand that one of the biggest challenges is finding and maximising the use of a quality QSA. This webcast will give you examples of how a bad QSA can derail your PCI programme: Topics discussed include: •QSAs so unschooled in technical matters, that they believe in impossible things—and expect you to do them! •QSAs too nervous to suggest compensating controls—even when such controls are cheaper, more effective, and easier to deliver •QSAs with a Napoleon complex. They think like a general. And your company supplies the troops. They command. You respond. And guess who dies on the battlefield? •QSAs that are irresolute. They change their mind. They shift their opinion. Meanwhile, your compliance goal keeps drifting farther into the future Erik Petersen is the Vice President of Professional Services for Dell SecureWorks. He is a risk management and IT control expert who has led teams and built professional consulting practices that specialise in applying sound risk management and information security best practices for organisations seeking to manage their business risks.
