| Blog, PCI

Throughout 2023, TrustNet has stood at the forefront of cybersecurity. We continue to garner notable achievements and provide key takeaways from industry-leading events such as CyberDefenseCon 2023 and the RSA Conference 2023. We actively contributed to critical discussions on emerging security risks, championing the necessity of proactive measures in cybersecurity. 

In these events, we underscored the criticality of maintaining full network visibility for swift threat detection and response. Furthermore, TrustNet acknowledged the evolving landscape of cybersecurity, including the implications of artificial intelligence on societal trust. Our unwavering commitment to continuous learning and innovation propels us forward as we enter the new year. 

Keep reading as we delve deeper into TrustNet’s success stories through 2023. 

TrustNet’s Successes at CyberDefenseCon 2023

TrustNet left a significant mark at CyberDefenseCon 2023, a gathering of the world’s top information security leaders and innovators. The event was a platform to explore smarter ways of mitigating risk in the ever-evolving threat environment. TrustNet, with our two-decade-long industry experience, emphasized the importance of being proactive in cybersecurity and having complete network visibility to detect and respond to threats promptly. 

TrustNet’s mantra of designing solutions based on these principles has been recognized by the same group that organizes CyberDefenseCon annually. Our numerous accolades from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) are a testament to our innovative and cost-effective solutions that stay one step ahead of the subsequent breach. 

The discussions at the conference and TrustNet’s research highlighted the future of information security: 

    • Information Security (InfoSec) leaders are evolving beyond managing firewalls and antivirus software and are now linked to diverse business functions.
    • Given the complexity and severity of emerging threats, businesses adopting a risk-centric approach in the digital economy will likely be more resilient and prosperous.
    • The widespread use of IoT devices and AI technologies has expanded the attack surface for organizations.
    • Data breaches have led many jurisdictions and industries to enact stricter data and privacy legislation.
    • Industry experts believe that cybersecurity is no longer just an IT problem. 

TrustNet combines human expertise, advanced technologies, and streamlined processes to simplify and reinforce compliance and security postures. Our award-winning solutions have gained the confidence of hundreds of satisfied clients, from startups to mature enterprises worldwide.

TrustNet’s Achievements at the RSA Conference 2023

TrustNet also made a significant impression at the RSA Conference, a premier global cybersecurity event held annually since 1991. This gathering showcases the latest products and services in IT security, providing an opportunity for organizations and thought leaders to explore emerging threats, trends, and innovations. The conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco attracted thousands of attendees and hundreds of companies. TrustNet was there to gain fresh insights into security and compliance and bagged two prestigious Global InfoSec Awards, reinforcing our commitment to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity. 

Our team engaged with ETHOS (Emerging Threat Open Sharing), a collaborative platform designed as an alarm system for critical infrastructure increasingly targeted by threat actors. We also participated in discussions about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its societal impact. While AI’s potential to assist with day-to-day tasks was acknowledged, concerns about its sensitivity to complex verbal instructions and resulting “trust issues” made some organizations hesitant to embrace it fully. The conference also highlighted the intersection of technology with other fields, featuring guests from journalism, education, marketing, policy-making, law, and even the arts. 

TrustNet’s participation in the RSA Conference 2023 was a resounding success. We returned with fresh insights to apply across our business, from product innovation to market strategy. We were particularly proud of our affiliated brand, GhostWatch, earning two coveted awards: Next Gen Managed Compliance and Next Gen Managed Security Service Provider by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM).

TrustNet’s Role in Helping Companies Understand and Avoid PCI DSS Fines 

TrustNet, a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), plays a vital role in helping companies understand and avoid fines associated with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. Our comprehensive range of services empowers businesses to achieve their compliance goals and build a sustainable program, regardless of where they are in the compliance cycle. 

PCI Gap Assessment

One of our essential services is the PCI Gap Assessment. This includes thoroughly reviewing policies and procedures, conducting interviews, and reviewing network diagrams, configurations, and data flow documentation.  

Our team identifies where cardholder data is stored, creates data flow analysis and mapping of cardholder data, assesses network segmentation, reviews architectural design and documents, and confirms the scope for future PCI DSS onsite validation. This process provides businesses with a clear understanding of their current state and what steps they need to take to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance. 

PCI DSS Compliance Review SAQ 

Another vital service we provide is the PCI DSS Compliance Review SAQ. Companies that attest to their own Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) can utilize this service for compliance reviews and guidance. We review policies and procedures, conduct interviews, review network diagrams, configurations, and data flow documentation, validate where cardholder data is stored, create data flow analysis and map cardholder data, validate network segmentation, and assist in completing the SAQ.   

Furthermore, we offer PCI Penetration Testing to identify weaknesses, improve security, and reduce potential attack surfaces, fortifying a company’s defense against potential cyber threats. 

PCI DSS Report on Compliance (ROC)

Finally, TrustNet provides PCI DSS Report on Compliance (ROC) guidance for businesses ready to undergo annual PCI audits. The deliverable includes an official Report on Compliance confirming that you meet the Payment Card Industry requirements, the Attestation of Compliance (AOC), and recommendations for improvements. In addition, we offer PCI Remediation Assistance, providing consulting and remediation services in all aspects of PCI DSS compliance. This may include developing specific implementation plans, consulting on various remediation needs, managing remediation tasks and timelines, and offering expert advice from our Qualified Security Assessors (QSA).
