Retail Customer Experience has announced the publication of "Understanding PCI DSS and Payment Card Security," a comprehensive guide to card payment security. The report lays out the 12 requirements for compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), with step-by-step checklists for each one.
According to PrivacyRights.org, more than 510 million records with sensitive information have been breached since January of 2005. And according to Visa, not a single compromised entity has been found that was in compliance with PCI DSS at the time of its breach.
In addition to step-by-step details on how to achieve compliance with each of the 12 requirements in the PCI DSS standard, the 39-page report also includes a comprehensive directory of compliance analysts and auditors, consultants, and hardware/software providers, so readers will know exactly where to turn if they find they need outside help.
The report, which sells for $297, is delivered instantly as a PDF and is available here.
