PCI-P2PE Trailblazer

Sam has had the privilege of being part of the internal team that built and released the first PCI validated point-to-point encryption solution in North America, as well as working with other solution providers to attain this challenging validation.  Sam's role has included writing cryptographic procedures, overseeing key management and policy compliance, and helping launch the world's first PCI-P2PE 2.0 decryption-as-a-service (DaaS) solution.  Sam is now a QSA (P2PE), one of fewer than 100 assessors worldwide certified to assess P2PE solutions.


PCI Liaison

Somewhere between internal distractions and your auditor's idealism is the optimal mix of security, risk-management, and efficient business operations.  Sam is a certified as a qualified security assessor (QSA), a P2PE QSA, and PCI Professional (PCIP), allowing him to operate in a unique position as both liaison to your QSA, as well as a surrogate team member to assist with the design of effective solutions for secure payment processing.  Other services include drafting policy documentation, penetration testing, network design, and in general demystifying the world of PCI compliance.

Payments Architect

Since 2006, when Diverge built the first-of-its-kind SaaS mobile EBT acceptance system on the Ingenico i7910 platform, we have never stopped innovating.  Sam's recent product work includes a jQuery-driven e-Commerce API, and the world's first PCI-P2PE/EMV semi-integrated/standalone countertop terminal for retail and small businesses (including signature capture and printer).   Roles included drafting business requirements, conducting vendor analysis, running RFPs, document writing, product management, and QA.

Integration Specialist

Designing, building, or testing a payment solution requires understanding of the underlying software/hardware architecture, but also the impact of data flows on PCI compliance, EMV certification, and card brand compliance. We have worked with numerous software companies to architect payment solutions for security, compliance, and cost-effectiveness.  Whether as the application architect, PCI consultant, business analyst, or project manager, we know how to navigate the pitfalls to ensure timely and on-budget project delivery.
