The narcissistic side of me likes to brag that the 451 Group's Josh Corman owes his fame to me for writing about his talk on PCI as "No Child Left Behind" more than a year ago.The article caused heated debate on Twitter and led to a two-part podcast debate I co-hosted with Network Security Podcast host Martin McKeay. The debate then turned into a road show of sorts, with PCI panel discussions at several security conferences last year, with different players in each town.Now, I know I really had nothing to do with Corman's fame. He was already well on his way before we met at Chris Hoff's July 4 party in 2009. He's earned his place in the community for taking on Rugged and putting together colorful presentations like this: But I am happy to have played a role in the PCI debate. I'd like to think we're all a bit smarter about PCI and compliance in general as a result of the trouble that little story caused.Which gives me the nerve to suggest something that'll probably make Corman annoyed with me, if he's not already.We're seeing another acronym getting thrown around a lot these days, largely thanks to RSA's recently-announced security breach: APT, the advanced persistent threat.
