Presentation - PCI, an introduction
The PCI standards are the basis for an increasingly important and impacting body of
rules in the card industry, with impacts in sometimes unexpected corners. The
presentation aims to clarify the situation by detailing
- why is there a need for something like PCI?
- who is PCI? What is the governance structure? How is compliance managed?
- which standards exist? How do they coexists and interdepend? PCI & SEPA?
- PCI-DSS, a short tour and some practical considerations

Speaker Bio:
Peter Johannes (Dr. Ir., MBA) is Head of Security of Atos Worldline NV/SA, and
Security Architect for the international operations of Atos Worldline.
Peter has extensive expertise in the payment domain since 1994, where he
participated during 5 years in the EMV standardization as Europay representative.
After a few years of senior security consultancy Peter joined Atos Worldline where
he is in charge of the security department. One of the main tasks is the
implementation of the various security compliancy requirements and managing the
corresponding audits. His pet peeve is that being compliant does not necessarily
means being secure.
