Security Metrics released their third study on unencrypted card data; the results were astonishing as 63% of businesses do not encrypt credit cards. This means that businesses are storing the 16-digit Primary Account Number (PAN) in the clear. 7% of businesses are storing the magnetic stripe data found on the back of the card. Not only is storing unencrypted card information reckless—putting organizations and their customers at risk—it violates Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
