LONDON, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next week, over 500 global stakeholders in the payment card industry (PCI) will attend the sixth annual PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) European Community Meeting. Ground Labs, a prominent developer of cardholder data discovery software for the payment card industry, will sponsor this year's event in Dublin, Ireland and participate in the Vendor Showcase.
The PCI SSC Community Meetings provide an opportunity for SSC members to learn from each other's experiences implementing the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Participants also have opportunities to make suggestions for future versions of the Standards and learn about best practices for protecting cardholder data as they interact with other industry stakeholders.
With offices located across 3 continents, Ground Labs is one of the international sponsors of the upcoming Community Meeting. The company's flagship products, Card Recon and Enterprise Recon, identify data storage risks on thousands of computer systems worldwide, helping companies prevent security breaches that result in the theft of customers' credit and debit card numbers.
"Finding and protecting cardholder data embodies the spirit of the PCI Data Security Standard. Making sure all the parties involved work towards the same goal in keeping cardholder data safe is what the community meeting aims to achieve," said Mohamed Zouine, EMEA Director of Corporate Development for Ground Labs. "The European Community Meeting offers us a unique opportunity to interact with many of our partners and enterprise merchant customers within the region to gain invaluable feedback that leads to further product improvements which the entire industry can benefit from."
Card Recon and Enterprise Recon assist organisations in thoroughly identifying rogue cardholder data in all types of data storage, including emails, databases, documents and various other locations. This process is becoming a critical step toward achieving compliance with the PCI DSS standard.
The Vendor Showcase will present an opportunity for participants to interact with a broad variety of vendors servicing the payment card industry and learn about their important work in the field of cardholder data security. As a participant in the Vendor Showcase, Ground Labs will provide live demonstrations of its Card Recon software for PCI Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) and of its Enterprise Recon software for large merchant organisations.
The 2012 European Community Meeting will be held October 22-24 at the RDS in Dublin, Ireland. A similar Community Meeting was held back on September 23-23 in Orlando, Florida where Ground Labs was also a sponsor.
