SISA, a global payment security specialist, announced that it will partner with the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) for its first ever payment security conclave in India. The event, which will feature payment and cyber security experts and organizations, will be held in New Delhi on 13 March 2019. The conclave will highlight the challenges and opportunities for data security in India and provide updates on the latest standards and solutions for protecting payments.
SISA is the Platinum Sponsor for this event and is also showcasing its range of security products and services (Booth No: 5). Mr.Dharshan Shanthamurthy, Founder and CEO at SISA, will deliver a session titled, “Technology and Payments – Lessons Learned from Data Breaches in 2018,” which will take a closer look at recent breaches and offer tips on what organisations can do to protect their environments.
Speaking about the event, Mr. Shanthamurthy said, “India has regularly been witnessing more than its share of data breaches that have compromised data and records of millions of people. We need to build awareness and educate organisations about payment security best practices. We’re happy to partner with PCI SSC for this event since it has been doing some phenomenal work in developing, maintaining, and managing PCI security standards across the globe.”
The conclave takes place in the backdrop of the Council recently publishing two new standards: the PCI Secure Software Standard and the PCI Secure Software Lifecycle Standard. The two new standards, part of a new PCI Software Security Framework, outline security requirements and assessment procedures to help ensure that the payment software adequately protects the integrity and confidentiality of payment transactions and data.
Mr. Lance J. Johnson, Executive Director, PCI SSC, will deliver the keynote address with insights into the current and future payment security landscape. Other speakers include Mr.Nitin Bhatnagar, Associate Director – India, PCI SSC Mr.Jeremy King, International Director – Europe, PCI SSC; and Ms.Laura Gray, Senior Director of Communications, PCI SSC. The day-long event will also feature two panel discussions. The first will focus on the role of data security and standards in establishing a cashless society, and second one on the future of digital payments.
This conference is open to organisations and individuals involved in the payment ecosystem. The organizers also seek to attract those entities that are interested in becoming PCI participating organizations. Registration is underway for the event.
