Free webcast on PCI DSS compliance

Protegrity : 23 May, 2008  (Technical Article)
With PCI compliance deadline approaching, Protegrity arranges webcast to provide guidance on web application security
As the 30th June deadline approaches, merchants, banks, card processors, and service providers are trapped between the necessity of complying with PCI mandated web application security regulations and the need to secure their systems properly.

In accordance with Section 6.6 of the new PCI DSS requirements, organisations must either complete a full software code review of all of their web applications or deploy a web application firewall by 30th June. According to Ounce Labs, Protegrity, and new research from the PCI Knowledge Base, companies need to do both to achieve real security.

A free Webcast being held on 28 May 2008 at 6pm BST (1pm EDT) featuring security experts from Protegrity and Ounce Labs, will provide realistic guidance on devising and deploying a web application security plan. One designed to enable PCI compliance and achieve real security that dovetails with business and operational requirements.

"Code analysis or web application firewalls alone will not provide an adequate level of security," says Dave Taylor, founder of the PCI Knowledge Base. "A combination of the two is needed to really protect web applications. If organisations implement one, but not the other by the June 30th deadline, they will be in compliance. But they will not be secure."

"The significant and growing threat of application attacks means that application security should be a high priority for any organisation with web applications," says Claudia Dent, senior VP of product management at Ounce Labs. "Source-level analysis is required because a majority of customer credit information exposures occur as a result of issues with access control, authorisation, and data storage/transmission, which are problems often found only within the application source code itself. Performing a code review is an essential piece of any comprehensive application security strategy."

"Web applications are increasingly under attack by malicious hackers," says Phil Dinsmore, general manager of web application security at Protegrity. "Web application firewalls that detect and prevent those attacks are an integral part of a multi-tiered approach to web application security."

The webcast will enable companies, press, and analysts to tap into the extensive real-world customer experience of the presenters to understand how leading companies are protecting their web applications, and how web application firewalls and security source code analysis provide different and complementary controls.
