More Breaches Announced; U.S. FBI Says Target Breach Just a Foreshadow
DATA LOSSFebruary 13, 2014
A Verizon report has found that a vast majority of companies who achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) annually fail to maintain that status, leaving them exposed to potential breaches and other security risks, Computerworld reports. The report found that 11 percent maintained compliance status between each PCI DSS assessment. Sebastian Maza, Verizon’s head of PCI DSS Asia Pacific, told The Sydney Morning Herald that businesses struggle to detect and address cyber-attacks. Meanwhile, the FBI recently warned retailers that the recent attacks against Target and other brands foreshadow events to come, and a number of brands have announced new breaches.
