PCI Expert Joins BHI Advanced Internet as Director of Information Security

BHI Advanced Internet, the leading Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) of Internet security and PCI compliance services, is proud to announce the addition of Blake Huebner to its Information Security team.

Eden Prairie, MN, May 29, 2010 --(PR.com)-- As the provider of SecureConnect®, the premier PCI compliance solution tailored specifically for the multi-site retail industry, BHI Advanced Internet welcomes Mr. Huebner’s extensive knowledge of the Payment Card Industry and his experience as an Information Technology and Security professional. In his previous role as a PCI Team Lead and Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), Huebner provided organizations with security advisory services, PCI assessments and audits, and remediation of security weaknesses. Well-versed in the technical resources and capabilities of the restaurant and retail industries, Huebner’s expertise will be highly advantageous to the needs of BHI and its customer base.

Huebner joins BHI to provide Information Security leadership through Information Technology and Security consulting and PCI compliance. In addition he will ensure all products and services meet BHI’s high standards of security and will support the efforts of Marketing, Sales and Product Development to continue the company’s innovative and leading position in the industry. “I continue to believe that the high caliber of employees at BHI is a testament to our success. With the addition of Blake Huebner, we are further succeeding the competition by providing our customers with the highest knowledge and expertise available” says Dave Perrill, President of BHI Advanced Internet.

As the consumer expectation for speed-of-service grows and the convenience of using debit and credit cards continues to expand, the merchant’s responsibility to protect sensitive cardholder data over the public Internet will remain an important aspect of doing business. “The PCI DSS provides baseline requirements for becoming compliant” Huebner says. These requirements, which were developed to help minimize risk of a data security breach and protect the integrity of the payment card industry, aren’t going away. “Utilizing a solution such as SecureConnect® allows organizations to maintain compliance, but more importantly, be secure” Huebner adds. So, while some may be frustrated with the task of becoming PCI compliant, industry experts, like Huebner, add significant value to national brands by leveraging his knowledge and arming franchisees with critical information to drive network security, leading them ultimately to PCI compliance.
