Hi all,

On Thursday November 12th we have two great speakers lined up for our next
chapter meeting. Both posses great experience in their respective areas, so
can get across the information and answer your questions that might not be
so easy to find in the books. Stephen O'Boyle will talk about PCI DSS
(Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard), the set of compliance
guidelines that you must adhere to if you store, transmit or process credit
card information. This will be followed up with Barry Mulcahy's valuable
information on management of identity and access to data across systems.

Also, thanks to the kind sponsorship from Espion on the night there will be
some food and drinks provided too. No doubt, this should be a great night :)
