Expert: Many Complacent on PCI DSS Compliance
FINANCIAL PRIVACYOctober 6, 2011
In an interview with BankInfoSecurity.com, Verizon PCI Consulting Services Director Jen Mack says that many organizations are still struggling with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). In its PCI Compliance Report, Verizon disclosed results of a study of 100 organizations--ranging from Fortune 500s to small businesses--showing that many are complacent about security. "Many take the approach that it's a compliance project versus trying to achieve what I think can be an optimal security posture for the long-term health of the business," says Mack. She also discusses how organizations maintain compliance; why many are complacent with security, and why cardholder data breaches should be a concern for the industry.
