Past, Present and Future of Web Application Security in PCI
Presented by: Bernie Weidel - PCI Product Manager, Qualys

Abstract: This presentation will start off with a holistic view of Ecommerce Data Security in contrast to the overall scope of Fraud in the Financial Services Industry, thereby giving insights as to why the PCI DSS was created by the Credit Card Brands and developed into its current form. Next, we will explore the current state of Web Application Security in the PCI DSS v1.1 and attempt to bring clarity to some of the more confusing items. We will also outline the structure of the PCI DSS Council; reviewing its key concepts and requirements. Lastly, we will outline methods you can use to proactively get involved in shaping future versions of the PCI DSS.
