CIOs Should Pay Attention to PCI DSS
DATA PROTECTION—AUSTRALIAFebruary 11, 2011
CIOs should make themselves aware of recent changes to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), according to one executive. In an interview with CIO Australia, Tim Smith of Bridge Point Communications says that "PCI is such a technical standard, it absolutely involves the CIO or members of the CIO's team." Smith predicts that companies that think of PCI DSS compliance as a way toward greater security will rise above those that do not. "The companies that have done the best...are those that have looked at (PCI DSS) as being an opportunity to bring a good security rigor into their organisation," Smith said.
