Chris Mark will be presenting at the 2014 COMTEC TouchNet Client Conference on PCI DSS and data security within the payment card industry. The title of the presentation will be Hitting the PCI Bullseye. COMTEC is the premier conference for Higher Education organizations. I was invited to speak in 2012 but found myself delayed returning to teh US as I was in the Gulf of Aden providing maritime security. Below is a description from the TouchNet website.
“Join us for the COMTEC pre-conference PCI Workshop: Hit the Bullseye on November 10th. This power-packed day of PCI and security training is vital for business, security, compliance, audit, and IT professionals who want to stay on target with changes in payment security rules in the coming year. You’ll get real-world advice on compliance and best practices from industry experts and campus leaders who are dedicated to information security.”

At 10 am on September 3rd, 2014 Chris (that is me) will be speaking at the 16th annual AT&T CyberSecurity Conference in New York City. My particular discussion will be on the Human Element of Security. From providing armed force protection in Mogadishu to unarmed security in a psychiatric ward through information security and anti-piracy work in the Gulf of Aden, I have learned that the underpinnings of security transcend all security domains. My presentation will hit on the concepts of rationality, Knightian uncertainty, parallax, proximate reality, change blindness, deterrence, and threat adaptation to provide tools CSOs can use to make more informed decisions about security.

I was privileged to be able to speak at an AT&T BPO event in 2013. In Feb 2014 AT&T Marketing published the videos. I found one but was unaware they had published all 3. I hope you enjoy. (remember…the camera adds 10 lbs! ;)

You can Chris Mark’s (my) latest article in May, 2014’s edition of TransactionWorld Magazine. Titled “5 Common Security Practices that Put You At Risk” This particular article is about how common errors companies make in security and compliance and how to reduce the risk of compromise. By now we all recognize that 100% security can never be achieved. By following well established security practices you can can minimize the risk to which your organization is exposed.
