Originally started in 1993, DEF CON is an annual gathering in Las Vegas, NV for members of the hacking community. DEF CON is one of the oldest continuous running hacker conventions around, and also one of the largest.
Jack Daniel, Tenable Product Manager, will be participating in a panel discussion on the subject of PCI at this year's DEF CON. The panel, official titled PCI 2.0: Still Compromising Controls and Compromising Security, will build on the panel discussion from DEF CON 18. Having framed the debates in the initial panel, this year they will focus on what works, what doesn't, and what we can do about it. Compliance issues in general, and PCI-DSS in particular, are driving security in many organizations. In tight financial times, limited security resources are often exhausted on the "mandatory" (i.e. compliance) at the expense of the "optional" (i.e. security). The panel discussion will focus on the information needed to reconcile these issues, and will encourage the audience to continue the discussion.
Mr. Daniel brings many years of IT security expertise to Tenable Network Security. In addition to his position at Tenable, Mr. Daniel is Director of the National Information Security Group (NAISG), a non-profit organization focused on promoting IT security awareness. Before joining the company, he served as Community Development Manager at Astaro AG, a Sophos company, where he grew Astaro’s partner and customer, and IT and security communities.
