Have you ever tried to navigate the PCI website and gotten lost and confused? Are you part of the 99% of companies that must traverse the PCI Compliance landscape as part of the “Self-Assessment” or “do-it-yourself” crowd? Have you been overwhelmed by vendor claims of “PCI made easy” or “PCI Compliance in 10 minutes” or “PCI in a Box”?

The series is being done as a webinar and audio will be available after the webinar. Since it's a webinar, there's an opportunity for listeners to ask questions. We'll almost certainly never be...

Comments and Commenting Policy

by Marcus J. Ranum on March 7, 2013

I believe that one of the things that gives a blog life and interest is its commentariat. This is not a free-for-all zone, however, so comments are moderated (for appropriateness, spam blocking, etc). The comment area is intended so you can talk amongst yourselves, though I'll try to review it and may respond occasionally. If you have a question that may be appropriate to answer in a blog posting, I reserve the right to lift your comment out of the comment section and address it at more length. Or, if you want to email me comments, questions or topics you think I might want to address, feel...
