The meeting will feature two presentations on PCI compliance and
certification from IPS Networks.  Following the second presentation, we can
open the meeting up for question and answer.

*Speakers*:* Don Bowen, Farrah Smith

**Organizations today are faced with a host of regulatory compliance
requirements, such as PCI, SOX and NERC. It has become increasingly
important for organizations to ensure payment account data security through
compliance with the PCI DSS. Don will attempt to demystify some of the myths
and questions that commonly trouble PCI level 3 and 4 merchants. He will
also discuss why the PCI DSS is necessary and provide an auditor’s
perspective on what is required to achieve compliance through completing a
“Self Assessment Questionnaire”.
I am also working to engage speakers on the following topics:

   - OWASP Top Ten
   - Digital Forensics
   - Web Application Firewalls
   - Fuzzers
   - Exploitation Techniques

If you know anyone who is talented in these areas, or have an interest in
participating as a presenter, please let me know, I am happy to work with
anyone in the chapter to help fulfill these requests!
