Why Standards for Securing Digital Payments Are EssentialPCI Security Standards Council's Nitin Bhatnagar on the Indian Landscape
Following industry standards should not be a compliance-driven, checkbox activity, says the PCI Security Standards Council's Nitin Bhatnagar.
"It has to be a holistic approach, and you have to get involved with people, process and technology," he says. "Standards can help you protect your entire infrastructure, end-to-end."
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Mumbai Security Summit, Bhatnagar discusses:
- The importance of standards for securing digital payments;
- Traction for PCI standards in the Indian market;
- Taking a holistic approach to standards implementation.
As associate director for India, Bhatnagar leads the PCI Security Standards Council's efforts to increase adoption and awareness of the PCI security standards. His primary responsibilities include gathering feedback from industry leaders, driving education efforts and increasing PCI participation through involvement in local and regional events, industry conferences and meetings with key stakeholders.
