jan%20coverChris Mark (this guy with two thumbs) is in the January 2013 edition of TransactionWorld Magazine.  You can read my article titled: “In 2013 the only certainties are Death, Taxes, and the PCI DSS” in which I opine about the need for PCI DSS and other security standards as we enter 2013.   The bio on the article is not accurate and still references an old position I had at ProPay. That being said, ProPay is a great company for which I was fortunate and proud to have worked, a company at which my illustrious wife, Dr. Heather Mark still works, and a company who deserve a big Congrats for being acquired by TSYS!..all in all…no harm, no foul.

Chris and Heather Mark both have articles in the August 2012 issue of TransactionWorld Magazine.  Chris’ is titled: “The Impact of the Fortress Mentality  & Today’s Compliance Strategies” while Heather’s is titled: “After the Compromise; Security Incident Response and Mitigating the Damage”

One note.  I apparently forgot to update my bio with the Editor in Chief so the article erroneously references me as the Executive Vice President of Data Security and Compliance for a payment processor.  You can visit Mark Consulting Group at the following: www.MarkConsultingGroup.com
