Come learn about PCI Compliance with Josh Lee and Brie Hoblin!

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of standards enforced by the major US credit-card networks. Compliance is required for any businesses processing credit card payments on these networks (e.g. VISA, Mastercard). For e-commerce, there are specific rules for how your business handles and transmits your customers’ credit card data.

While Brie & Josh are not lawyers, in this session they will try to answer these questions:

- What is PCI compliance?
- Does it matter to me and my website or app?
- How can I ensure I am in compliance?
- What are the best ways to perform e-commerce transactions?
- How can I test my website or app for PCI Compliance?

Josh Lee is a consultant and developer with 12+ years of experience building e-commerce solutions. Brie Hoblin is a QA Engineer who runs Sage Logik, a QA consulting company in the greater Burlington area. She also co-hosts BTVTesters.

As always, whether you're a QA Engineer, a software dev who cares about writing quality code, or someone just getting in to software, come join us. This specific talk would also be relevant for business owners or website owners looking to learn about PCI Compliance.
