VOSS to Host Security Workshop for Cape Town IT Community, on PCI DSS for Everyone

Permalink

Wednesday 2nd September, 2015 – Cape Town - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that the company will host a fourth IT Security Workshop, at its headquarters in Cape Town.

  • Date: Wednesday September 9th, 2015
  • Time: 7pm – 9pm
  • Location: Knowledge Park 3, Unit 6 Heron Crescent, Century City, Cape Town

The session is entitled "PCI DSS for Everyone", and is free to attend. Discussion will focus on PCI DSS; a data security standard that provides information security objectives for the payment card industry. Its recommendations are common sense; e.g. use a firewall to secure your network, regularly scan your network for vulnerabilities, and monitor your network for intrusions.

During the workshop, students will consider and debate PCI DSS as a useful security standard for everyone (i.e. beyond credit card processing companies), to improve the security of our IT applications, systems and networks.

Dr Evan Summers is confirmed as the event speaker. Evan is a Principal Consultant at Saratoga, and currently works with the IOL digital media team at World Wide Creative, using Node.js, ReactJS and Redis to build websites for Independent Media.

This is the fourth IT Security Workshop that VOSS has sponsored, in association with OWASP.

Liam Smit, IT Manager at VOSS, commented; "These sessions are always very popular and attract key players from Cape Town’s IT security industry. It’s a real privilege to host such a dynamic event, and participate in the interactive discussion that always ensues."

To register for the free workshop, attendees will already be involved in technology, and will have an interest in learning the principles of information security. Places are limited, and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.
