The Integrated Solutions For Retailers Magazine has an articled titled PCI DSS: What Do You Know, Where Do You Stand?
For a couple of months spanning the first and second quarters of this year, Integrated Solutions For Retailers surveyed its subscribers — hundreds of retailers from many segments, ranging the gamut from small and regional chains to tier-one enterprises — on their perceptions of the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). The survey results surprised us. Respondents exuded nearly equal parts confidence, confusion, dismay, and ignorance. Some gloated. Some swore.
Some very interesting comments here, some of my favorites:
- From a regional grocer: “We’ve devoted no effort. PCI certification is an impossible-to-hit, moving target.”
- Only 23.9% of retailers surveyed indicated that they’re “very familiar” with the PCI DSS.
- 59.6% say fear of a breach is their motivation for achieving compliance.
