New Verizon report connects PCI non-compliance and data breaches

It should go without saying that DSS-compliance should be the minimum implemented, not the maximum security effort expended by a firm.

A new Verizon Business report released today shows a correlation between non-compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and data breaches. The results revealed that organizations that had suffered data breaches were 50% more likely to exhibit PCI non-compliance.

The Verizon Payment Card Industry Compliance Report, based on assessments done by Verizon QSAs between 2008 and 2009, held little in the way of surprises. Companies are still struggling to secure stored data, don’t do a good job tracking and monitoring access to data, and still fail to regularly test systems and processes.
