PCI Council Webinar to Address Point-to-Point Encryption Security

The PCI Security Standards Council has announced will provide a detailed overview to the recent updates to the PIN Transaction Security (PTS) program on November 8. A second, repeat webinar will be November 10.

Schools interested in P2PE may want to consider attending to get the latest information on the latest release of the PCI PTS requirements. Many institutions and their auxiliaries are very interested in this exciting technology that can reduce your PCI scope greatly. There are still some details like testing the POS devices to make sure they work as advertised, and this webinar should address some of those security questions.

Here are the details. You can also check out the PCI Council’s Website link:
