Presented by: Eric O'Neill, Former FBI Counterintelligence Operative, Founder, The Georgetown Group and National Security Strategist, Carbon Black

The Internet is not a safe environment. It is a frontier. Recent years have seen a massive increase in cyber theft of private and confidential information from government agencies, business and private individuals. The modern spy is responsible for these attacks. Today s spies are sophisticated, brilliant, devious and technologically advanced, and they are targeting your data. Robert Hanssen was the first of these new cyber spies, charged with selling American secrets to Russia for more than US$1.4 million in cash and diamonds. His ability to exploit computer systems allowed him to protect his identity during a 22-year spy career. Join Eric as he uses real-life spy stories to show how careful diligence, counter-espionage techniques, and restraint in social media can help identify the numerous spies, hackers, hacktivists and trusted insiders that threaten every stroke of the keyboard.

How are New Privacy Regulations Affecting Your PCI Program
Presented by: Adriana Gliga-Belavic, Partner Cyber Security and Privacy, Canadian Payments Security & PCI Practice Leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC)

Managing newly introduced privacy regulations in Europe and North America are hitting the news almost every day. In this changing environment, where credit card information is also considered personal information, most privacy standards and regulations will dictate how this data must be collected, used and disposed of. Both PCI DSS and privacy regulations have the same objective, which is to protect customer data, but are there aspects in common, and can we leverage our compliance efforts to meet both effectively? Find out more in this session.

16:10-16:40‘You Shall Not Pass!' Segmentation Done Right
Presented by: Joseph Pierini, Vice President, PSC and Phyllis Woodruff, Vice President of Security Programs and Standards, Fiserv

Segmentation isn't easy. There are many processes and systems that need access to the CDE and isolating the card data from the rest of the business can break critical business needs. Segmentation, when done right, can allow the business to continue without interruption while securing PAN data against unauthorized access. PSC has pen tested hundreds of segmentation designs and has seen some that work, some that might work and some that were a waste of money and resources. In this session, we'll cover the common points of compromise to your network and review the most common segmentation design schemes to identify which ones are smoke and mirrors and which ones can stand up against a direct assault.
PCI DSS Control Framework at Royal Dutch Shell
Presented by: Erik Pols, Retail Information Risk Manager, Royal Dutch Shell Ltd. and Rodolphe Simonetti, Managing Director, Security Consulting, Verizon

For PCI DSS Compliance, Royal Dutch Shell developed a Control Framework to embed and sustain PCI compliance activities to be better prepared for future changes of the standard, technology or business processes. Shell is managing PCI DSS requirements by operating 55 controls. The approach required the support of the QSA (Verizon) who had to align their ways-of-working. In this case study, Shell and Verizon will show the challenges faced when creating and implementing the PCI DSS Control Framework and the benefits when assessing Shell's retail markets.

Presented by: Jake Marcinko, Standards Manager, PCI Security Standards Council

As cyber-attacks increasingly target applications, software vendors and software developers are becoming more engaged in efforts to combat and prevent cyber-attacks. However, software development personnel have different priorities than security experts, and security experts need to be able to articulate security needs in development terms in order to bridge the gap. Join us for a panel discussion on modern trends in software development, the methods in which developers measure quality and success, and discover what the PCI SSC is doing to engage the Software Development Community and to improve the quality and security of payment software.
