Network PCI Assessment testing is becoming more and more essential in today's society. Does PCI Compliance equal security? The answer is, "Not necessarily." The ever-growing number of recent accounts of highly-publicized data breaches, in seemingly PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant and protected companies, reveals just how critical it is to become as knowledgeable and properly protected as possible.
Payment card information is an extremely high-profile and highly targeted medium and the tactics of cybercriminals are becoming more and more sophisticated and advanced. No organization is ever entirely secure; but with the proper defense technologies, businesses can tremendously alleviate their risk and vulnerability, and make it much more difficult for cybercriminals to breach their private networks and data.
Having a network PCI assessment can be beneficial in many ways as well. For one a successful network PCI assessment proves that compliance is not an issue, which can instill customer confidence. Secondly a network PCI assessment can reassure reliability to partners (such as the bank that processes merchant transactions). Finally, a network PCI assessment ensures that there is little chance of a breach.
