    IT Compliance and Controls
    Author: James J. DeLuccia IV
    Colleague and friend, James DeLuccia recently authored an impressive "blueprint" toward PCI Compliance that remains a top seller and invaluable reference for CIOs, CISOs, CSOs, IT security professionals, and corporate compliance officers.

    His book IT Compliance and Controls: Best Practices for Implementation is a pragmatic and realistic guide to identifying and remediating risks and non-compliance outlined in the Data Security Standard (DSS). James takes a practical and "real world" approach in implementing merchant IT security controls while protecting consumer credit card data.

    The PCI Security Standards Council is an open global forum for the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination and implementation of security standards for account data protection. The organization was founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa, Inc.
