Prepare for PCI DSS Version 3.0


Thomas Jefferson wisely said, “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.” When it comes to compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.0, it might be time for merchants to heed Jefferson’s advice. In a recent survey conducted by NTT Com Security aimed at assessing the awareness, acceptance, and understanding of PCI DSS 3.0, the findings were eye-opening:

  • Just 30% of respondents said they have reviewed the requirements and have a plan in place.
  • 41% stated they had heard of PCI DSS 3.0, but did not have a plan for compliance.
  • 70% were unaware of the date by which they need to be PCI DSS 3.0 compliant. [1]

Payment Information Security

How Important Is It to Train Employees on Information Security?

The short answer is – VERY important.  The fact is, the better your technical and infrastructure defenses are, the more likely it is that a social engineering attempt will be made on your people.

In 2013, over 89% of breaches and data loss incidents were deemed preventable through security awareness and execution programs. More relevant, 60% were the direct result of social engineering and other attacks that began with employees that had no substantial access to data. Put another way, 60% of the over one billion records lost in 2013 were the result of employees.[1]

Lesson on Tokenization

We see signs every day that inform us about safety measures an organization is taking. We have all seen these examples:

  • “Premises protected by video surveillance.”
  • “This vehicle stops at all railroad crossings.”
  • “Driver carries less than $100 in cash.”
  • “Caution: Wet floor”

These types of signs are common in business. They show customers, partners, and employees what’s being done to protect the business and help reduce the organization’s risk and liability.
