I just signed up for the Certified Payment-Card Industry Security Manager or CPISM. So I’ll be in Dallas, TX from November 5th - November 7th – If you are in the area or are also taking the exam, please feel free to drop me a note.
Here is the link to sign up:
The CPISM measures aptitude in eight knowledge domains that were were generated and validated by industry experts. These domains constitute the knowledge that a security manager in the payment card industry needs to protect data. The domains follow:
\* Payment card industry structure \* Payment card structure and data \* Payment card transaction processing \* Compromise fraud statistics and trends \* Merchant risk analysis \* Laws and the regulatory environment \* Payment card security programs \* Third party relationships

Since I’m in payment processing, and a former QSA this just really makes sense for me and will help us serve and support our clients better.
