Data breaches and payment card compromises are more frequent, high-profile, and damaging. The every day consumer has been hit by large data breaches at Target, Michaels, and Aaron Brothers, among others. People all around us can testify to the effects of millions of credit cards in the wrong hands. It has become commonplace.
The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) security standards has recently released a new and improved set of requirements and standards for any organization that processes, transmits, or stores payment card data. PCI DSS' infamous Requirement 6 focuses on secure systems and applications, including secure coding and web application firewalls. OWASP has been noted in the PCI DSS as a trusted resource for secure coding and application vulnerability management. Join us for our next OWASP Omaha chapter meeting as we explore the some of these resources and discuss ways that OWASP can help meet this requirement.
