March 19, 2012 - PRLog -- The new PCI DSS Version 2.0 mandates a risk assessment as per a formal methodology. However the standard is silent on what are the expectations of risk assessment under the standard. This leads to ambiguity and conflicting interpretations of Requirement 12.1.2 which mandates a formal risk assessment process. The speaker, who is the one of the proposers of the Special Interest Group (under the PCI Council) for PCI Risk Assessment shared some of the insights on how this important requirement should be addressed.

The session was well received by the audience and the quality of the presentation was well appreciated by the audience.
