Ground Labs Headlines Data Discovery at European Payment Card Industry’s 2014 European Community Meeting

LONDON, September 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Ground Labs will join the ranks of over 600 global payment security leaders attending this year’s 7th annual Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) European Community Meeting in Berlin, Germany.


The meeting serves as a regional gathering of data security experts to discuss the latest threats being faced by the payment card industry, as well as the most effective countermeasures. Ground Labs will be sponsoring the event as well as appearing in its vendor showcase showcasing the latest innovations in data discovery for PCI compliance.

With offices located across 3 continents, Ground Labs is a veteran global supporter of the PCI Community Meetings, having attended last month’s North American leg of the Community Meetings in Orlando, Florida. The company’s industry standard data security tools: Card Recon, Data Recon and Enterprise Recon assist organisations in thoroughly identifying rogue cardholder data in all types of data storage, including emails, databases, documents and various other locations.

The key point of discussion at this year’s PCI Community Meetings is the industry’s new security standard, the PCI DSS 3.0. Merchants all around the globe who accept credit card payments must display compliance to the rules and regulations set in the standard, and Ground Labs’ products helps merchants ensure that the strict PCI DSS guidelines are more easily met.

“Our tools are used extensively across Europe to ensure PCI DSS Compliance, so it is important that we attend these meetings to join in the knowledge sharing sessions and contribute to improving the security standard,” said Stephen Cavey, Director of Corporate Development for Ground Labs. “We take the feedback we receive from our customers, and share them directly with the people responsible for setting the standards. We believe that the PCI DSS can continue to evolve to an even stronger and practical standard, which will serve as an excellent safeguard against data breaches and identity theft.”

The Ground Labs European team will be providing pre-release demonstrations of the latest build of Enterprise Recon. Enterprise Recon V2 features an upgraded GUI and an enhanced set of data discovery features designed to help companies scan their entire network for 95 different types of sensitive data, including credit card numbers, healthcare information and personal identification numbers.

The 2014 European Community Meeting will be held October 7-9 at the Maritim Hotel in Berlin, Germany. The final meeting in the series for the Asian-Pacific region will be held November 18-19 in Sydney, Australia, which Ground Labs will also be sponsoring. Additional information is available here.
