At the end of the presentation, Mark will email a PCI DSS working papers spreadsheet to interested attendees.  This document is invaluable to any organization that is interested in starting their journey towards PCI DSS Compliance as it not only lists each requirement but it also includes the ROC reporting requirements as well as the additional requirements recommended for virtual environments.
