LONDON, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
As criminals continue to steal sensitive cardholder data, organisations that accept credit and debit card payments are making data security a high priority.
To help U.K. businesses and organisations minimise the likelihood of data breaches, Ground Labs is sponsoring the PCI London regional forum, to be held on July 6, 2011 at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel in London. This event brings together senior decision-makers and PCI compliance experts who are responsible for protecting their customers' cardholder data across the U.K.
"Once again, we are honoured to be a major sponsor of this event," says Stephen Cavey, Director of Corporate Development. "This event offers a prime opportunity to educate organisations from across the UK on the importance of thoroughly identifying rogue cardholder data in all types of data storage including emails, databases, documents and various other locations." Mr. Cavey explains that this process is becoming a critical step toward achieving compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Ground Labs will present on a variety of topics, including PCI compliance best practices and ongoing monitoring techniques that can reduce the likelihood of data breaches. Mr. Cavey's plenary keynote is titled, "What You Don't Know Can Hurt You: Eliminating 'Unknown Unknowns' on the Path to Securing Cardholder Data." The presentation will educate organisations on avoiding common PCI compliance mistakes related to cardholder data storage practices that are often overlooked. Executives from Visa Europe, Barclaycard and other leading organisations in the payment card industry will make additional presentations throughout the event.
U.K.-based merchants are invited to attend PCI London at no charge. Seats are limited and online registration must be submitted at http://www.regonline.co.uk/pcilondon2011
