SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Jan. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Viviana Wesley, CISM, PCI QSA, ISO 27001 Auditor, and Principal Consultant at HALOCK Security Labs will be presenting at the 2021 NAPCP Commercial Card Payment Virtual Conference taking place on May 10th – 21st, 2021.

The session, Using Pandemic Lessons and Risk Assessments to Prepare for PCI DSS 4.0 provides real examples of how scope reduction technologies have helped organizations manage their risk more easily through a pandemic. HALOCK will also explain the anticipated risk-based approach that is coming with PCI DSS 4.0 and how organizations can prepare for the new standard (and many new requirements) by strengthening their risk processes now. Attendees will learn how:
  • Easy some organizations' remote and on-premise working transitions have been because of Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) technology and why.
  • PCI DSS version 4, to be published in 2021, will introduce a risk-based approach to validating compliance.
  • To do risk analysis in a way that regulators expect.

"With everything we've seen this last year, it can become quite overwhelming. The right kind of Risk Assessment can not only help you deal with the ongoing risks of a remote workforce and pandemic but also prepare you for upcoming security requirements. It can help you bridge the communication gap between IT and business, so you can determine what is reasonable security for your organization," said Wesley.
