On March 22nd Miracle and Crimson will host a security seminar centering on the protection and use of personal data. The main focus will be on the PCI standard, the effect of GDPR and how the two interact. PCI is a standard created by the PCI Security Standards Council which is backed by major card issuers. The purpose of the standard is to protect card information. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which will come into effect on May 25 2018, aims at strengthening and unifying data protection for individuals within the EU.
The seminar is open to everyone and is relevant to management, technicians and other staff of organizations that handle card information and personal data. The morning session has a wider scope and the afternoon session dives deeper into the technical aspects.
