Understanding the Role of 3rd Party Resellers

Date: Wednesday, September 14

Presented by: Nathan Sweaney, Security Advisor, Secure Ideas

Integrators & resellers are often stuck between a complex standard and small merchants who may not understand security basics. Resellers want to protect their clients and provide compliant solutions and often must help SMBs with their security over compliance. This session will outline the challenges that impact the majority of SMB PCI environments that are installed and maintained by 3rd party resellers. That community is driving PCI compliance at Level 4 and must be included in the conversation.
