Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard
Adopting PCI DSS is a sensible thing to do from a security perspective, says New Net Technologies' Mark Kedgley.
Global Payments, a major credit card processor based in Atlanta, is off Visa's approved list after it confirmed it was breached of some 1.5 million card numbers. The incident, however, is still shrouded in some mystery.
The EMV standard, widely considered an effective way to curb counterfeit card fraud because it requires a microchip to be embedded in a credit or debit card or on a mobile device, is gradually picking up steam in the U.S.
PCI rules have evolved to keep up with new technologies, and adoption rates are growing, says Visa's Eduardo Perez.
Still facing budgetary pressures, security execs must apply unique thinking to security spend, which might mean studying metrics, making friends and passing compliance on the cheap.
