PCI Security Standards is a necessity for any business or organization that need to protect their vital data from a breach. The multitude of recent accounts of data breaches occurring in seemingly PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant and protected companies begs the question, "Does PCI compliance actually equal security?" The answer is, "Not necessarily."
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 PCI Security Standards, businesses can tremendously alleviate their risk and vulnerability, and make it much more difficult for cybercriminals to breach their private networks and data.
There can be serious financial and/or operational consequences to certain businesses that are not compliant. Failure to comply can have serious consequences for your business, your customers, and your financial institution; especially should the data become compromised. Compromised data negatively affects you, your consumers, your partners, and your financial institution.
