Robbyn Lennon, M.Ed., Senior Program Coordinator, University of Arizona; Kevin Sisler, CTP, Director of Treasury Services, University of Kentucky; and Peter Campbell, CISA, CISSP, QSA, Security Advisor, CampusGuard
Enterprise compliance can be a burden to manage, which is where a PCI ISA and PCIP can be helpful. Mastercard provides an option for Level 2 merchant organizations to have their own ISA perform their assessment and complete the SAQ function. But is that the only occasion for having an ISA? When is a QSA called for? And what about having your staff PCIP qualified? And how about a hybrid ISA/PCIP/QSA model to facilitate your compliance with the PCI DSS? This presentation will explore the issues and benefits for each model.
10:00 − 10:30 am Morning Refreshment Break, Exhibits, and Networking
10:30 am − 12:00 pm PCI’s Evolving Approach to Address NextGen Threats
Troy Leach, CISSP, CISA, Chief Technology Officer, PCI Security Standards Council
Advancements in technology have provided both new opportunities and new challenges for securing payment data. In this talk, we will discuss recent threats and how the tactics for payment security is shifting as a result. As well as how these changes provide insight for future PCI standards and programs, such as the next version of the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). Additionally, this talk will share examples of PCI metrics to demonstrate effective security has been adopted and likely making the organization more efficient in the process.
12:00 − 1:00 pm Networking Lunch
1:00 − 2:00 pm Point to Point Encryption in Higher Ed: What It Can Mean for Your PCI Scope
This presentation will describe how a PCI validated P2PE encryption differs from end-to-end solutions that instantaneously convert confidential credit card data and information into indecipherable code at the time the card is swiped, dipped or keyed to prevent fraud. We will also discuss the fact that the PCI SSC does not approve scope reduction for non-validated and E2EE solutions and that these solutions do not qualify for the SAQ P2PE. Attend this session to learn how a validated P2PE solution can impact mobile applications, reduce PCI scope, and provide cost savings.
1:00 − 2:00 pm Mobile Payments Revisited
Preston DuBose, ISA, E-Commerce & Payment Security Manager, Texas A&M University
Implemented properly, mobile payment acceptance can be a lifesaver for merchants on the move. This presentation reviews the range of options for untethered payments—from handheld, purpose-built card readers to smart-devices using P2PE. Attendees will learn about the technology behind mobile payment devices, PCI validation pitfalls, and considerations when shopping for mobile solutions. This session revisits the same topic presented in 2018 but updated with market changes from the past 12 months.
2:00 − 2:30 pm Afternoon Refreshment Break, Exhibits, and Networking
2:30 − 3:30 pm How the University of Florida Became PCI Compliant in 1 year.... The 4 Year Story
In 2015, the University of Florida had our new QSA conduct an onsite gap assessment to the new PCI standard (PCI 3.0). Over the next couple of years, UF evaluated several remediation plans. In early 2018 there was a renewed initiative at the high levels to achieve PCI compliance by the end of the calendar year. Throughout the year major strides were made, including replacing all our terminals for P2PE validated devices and migrating all ecommerce web services to a cloud services provider. These presenters will highlight some of UF's remediation plans, outline successes and failures, and share how they migrated their ecommerce to a cloud platform.
2:30 − 3:30 pm Sustaining a PCI Environment
Kim Stringham, Systems Analyst, Texas State University
Once you achieve PCI compliance on your campus how do you make sure you remain in compliance? As policies, procedures, and continual education can ensure your campus remains compliant, sometimes it is necessary to evolve your PCI program to tackle all the new (and sometimes horrible) payment technology that departments and vendors want to bring on to your campus. Hear real life stores of risk assessment and team work that helps to vet the surprises that will inevitably come your way as you try to sustain your PCI environment.

10:00 − 11:00 am Your Website is Compliant, but is It Secure?
Most universities recognize the value of reducing their scope by using third-parties, but can they rest easy just knowing they're compliant? This session will examine the security of web transactions when using a third-party to accept payment card data. It will explore the relationship between meeting the requirements of being compliant versus the need for security.
11:00 − 11:15 am Transition to Concurrent Sessions
11:15 am − 12:15 pm Lessons Learned from our PCI Incident Response Tabletop Exercise

11:15 am − 12:15 pm Follow the Money
Jon Bonham, QSA, CISA, Principal, Coalfire Systems Inc.
In the world of universities and colleges it is easy to focus on the big picture, the large transaction areas, high profile areas. Most major universities have over a hundred merchant IDs and some of those fringe areas have little exposure to the people that oversee Compliance or information security. This talk will take a stroll around a campus and look at how to evaluate the risks beyond the technology and beyond the everyday transactions that have been locked down and secured for years. Fixing the problems is easy. Finding the problems is hard.
12:15 − 1:15 pm Networking Lunch
1:15 − 2:15 pm Think Passwords are Enough? Live Hack and Password Crack Shows Why Multi-Factor Authentication is Crucial
Jennifer Stone, MSCIS, CISSP, QSA, CISA, SecurityMetrics, Inc.
Attendees will watch a step-by-step ethical hack to see passwords cracked in 3 minutes or less. To drive home the importance of 2-factor authentication in payment security the speakers will demonstrate how they can quickly run a remote attack to 'own' a desktop. The takeaways include the fact that passwords alone are not enough to protect data. Attend this session to see first- hand the attacks that threaten the security around the use of passwords and how to mitigate those threats.
2:15 − 2:45 pm Afternoon Refreshment Break, Exhibits, and Networking
2:45 − 3:45 pm The Evolution of PCI-Validated P2PE and Payment Security across the Higher Ed Campus
Eldred F. Garcia, PCIP, VP Security Solutions, Bluefin
This session will explore what has changed with PCI P2PE in 5 years. Hear how the evolution of the technology changed from a stand-alone solution to a network of providers, learn of the vendors that offer validated solutions and the types of solutions available, and the costs and benefits of PCI P2PE. The speaker will share specific examples from universities that have deployed P2PE.
2:45 − 3:45 pm Unified Campus Commerce
This session will illustrate the possibilities of blurring the lines between various channels on a college campus by implementing a unified payments technology across the campus estate. Unifying your payments stack across channels allows you to gain a single view of your student, gaining a better understanding of their purchasing behavior across campus. This equips universities with agility and the ability to focus in more deeply on the campus life experience for students leading to strategies related to creating a more convenient and seamless one. The byproduct of reducing your payment systems campus wide with a unified platform can help to reduce the burden of PCI. We will explore what this means in terms of what your PCI obligations are with fewer systems in place. We will provide examples of how large, complex, multichannel retailers have overcome similar PCI challenges by consolidating systems and the benefits it has brought in gaining additional insight into the behavior of their shoppers.
