You're PCI Compliant, but You're Not Quite Secure

Sr. Product Marketing Manager

PCI DSS requires covered companies to not only be 100 percent compliant, but to also maintain that posture continuously. The Interim report on compliance (iRoc) is a measure of the state of compliance and efficacy of PCI controls in between assessments – and is a good proxy for measuring an organization’s ability to maintain a continuous state of 100 percent PCI compliance. Verizon’s 2018 Payment Security Report finds that an increasing number of merchants are 100 percent compliant, growing from 11.2 percent of the covered merchants in 2012 to 52.5 percent in 2017.

The Future of Digital Risk and Cybersecurity: A POV from West Point

Head of Cybersecurity Strategy

Jonathan is a seasoned cybersecurity strategist. He's been at the forefront of international security policy and now leads Illumio's public cybersecurity policy engagements and research.

Last week I attended the U.S. Military Academy’s 55th annual senior leader conference at West Point to talk about the future of digital risk and cybersecurity. The conference was focused on the future of security in the Indo-Pacific region and brought together leaders from the across the United States to deliberate about the future. I’d not been to West Point since I was a kid and after serving for seven years in the Defense Department it felt like coming home. I also got in a few runs on the Hudson River by the campus – something I’d recommend any runner do. The fog rolled in over the river, up the parapets, and onto the green riverbeds and fields adjacent to the water. It reminded me of running in England’s Lakes District almost fifteen years ago.

Tackling Cyber Risk Down Under

Sr. Director of Product Marketing

I recently visited Melbourne for the first time for a roundtable hosted by CSO Magazine. I took the obligatory Yarra River cruise, wandered through the laneways, and sampled the famous coffee culture. Having grown up as a UK school kid whose evening routine involved watching the soap opera Neighbours (set in a suburb of Melbourne), it felt like a pilgrimage of sorts.

And the purpose of this trip? Getting to intellectually feast with fellow senior cybersecurity professionals responsible for protecting their respective industries: law firms, energy, telcos, consulting, higher education, and financial services.
