The true mettle of PA DSS lies in implementation and maintenance

PCI DSS may be the buzz word but there are other standards council is promoting. PA DSS falls in second to PCI DSS. The PA-DSS has indeed been branched off from the PCI-DSS standard and tailored to suite applications, which are present in the PCI-DSS environment. PA DSS is one among the matured standards in the industry to evaluate the application against, showcases the security index of your application.


PA-DSS OverviewAn overview of the PA-DSS Standard will be covered in this session including the terminologies used will be discussed.
PA-DSS v3.2 – 101Overview on the PA-DSS lifecycle and the adoption of changes in technology by the PA-DSS standards will be discussed in detail.
PA-DSS RequirementsHow the PA-DSS requirements are pertinent in an environment and the various challenges, conceptions and techniques will be suggested

Real Time SolutionsThe session will be interactive in conduct and will include discussion of various tools, techniques and solutions, for meeting the intent of the requirements defined in the PA-DSS standard.
QSA Opinion – Intent vs ImplementationThe session will also discuss the role of a QSA in construing the intent of the requirement while evaluating the controls which have been implemented.
ScenariosThe entire standard will be presented as scenario based analysis


The speakers are highly experienced QSA’s and have conducted the PA-DSS sessions worldwide and has trained professionals across various verticals.
The session will be designed around a classroom based awareness, which will enable the teams interact with each other as a whole.
The teams are requested to interact with the trainers, who have experience as a QSA having certified numerous organizations.
All the material which will be presented to the teams will be made available in the handouts given to the teams. All the extra reads and the suggested reading links and references will also be included.
The PA-DSS v3.2 standards warrants the requirements of various documents in the form of forms, approvals, justifications, change management, policies and procedures. While much of these documents are specific to each organization, a template for all the documents which are common, with respect to the PA-DSS requirements will be shared with the attendees.
A pre-read of the PA-DSS standards and associated terminologies is encouraged, though not mandatory. This helps the session aim at the changes, techniques for implementation and its other core focusses, rather than focussing on the requirements themselves.
The audience are encouraged to cite real time scenarios and bottlenecks of implementation to seek the QSA advise on any impending issues.
We came to understand the standards and the approach to be taken to secure our assets,”THE DATA”
It’s always useful to look into security from security team perspective
The highlight of the workshop was the test.
It was very good , they were able to explain the standards through scenarios
