Drupalcon Denver 2012 - PCI: A Four Letter Word of E-Commerce

Date Published: 

Note: This session is very helpful for anyone considering PCI compliance. This was presented at Drupalcon Denver in the eCommerce track in 2012 by vordude. Vordude is not connected with Drupal Commerce and this session does not mention Drupal Commerce as a means to becoming PCI compliant.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a huge, scary set of policies and procedures intended to optimize the security of credit, debit and cash card transactions. When you first get started the idea of becoming (and staying) compliant seems like a Labor of Sisyphus. We know we should comply with the PCI Security Standards, right? But at first glance, it seems like a lot of effort, and confusing to boot. But not only is compliance becoming increasingly important, it may not be the problem you expected. (Then again...) During this session we will briefly go over the PCI-DSS and basic do's and don'ts to get you on your way to PCI Compliance.
