event for the Ground Labs EMEA team, held at the Victoria Park Plaza in London as always.

Later in the day Stephen went on to deliver some focussed education sessions on implementing and using Enterprise Recon for network wide cardholder data discovery across multi-site environments.

Also in attendence at the event was the familiar and friendly group of PCI compliance vendors including Protegrity, Veritape, LogRhythm, Forgenix, Verizon, Semafone, Sysnet, and IP Payments.
