This is my first McAfee conference. I did not expect to see so many people! Well, so far it was just a welcome reception night club for the partners, in Venetian Las Vegas... The conference actually starts tomorrow...
The PCI SSC meeting (1400 participants) is over. Mostly, minor clarifications in PCI DSS and PA-DSS 3.0, changes in PTS testing requirements 4.0.

I am going to the PCI SSC community meeting in Las Vegas next week.
Anyone who knows what it is :) - see you there!
