Pocket guide to PCI DSS compliance

IT Governance : 05 September, 2008  (New Product)
IT Governance has released a pocket guide to help companies meet payment card industry compliance requirements
All businesses that accept payment cards are prey for hackers and criminal gangs that seek to steal payment card and individual identity details. Many attacks are highly automated, seeking out website and payment card system vulnerabilities remotely, using increasingly sophisticated tools and techniques. When a vulnerability is discovered, an attack can start - without management or staff of the target company having any awareness of what is going on. PCI DSS is designed to ensure that merchants are effectively protecting cardholder data, and IT Governance have launched a PCI DSS Pocket Guide which is a handy reference tool that provides a concise and clear introduction and an overview of PCI DSS.

PCI DSS recognises that not all merchants may have the technical understanding to identify for themselves the necessary steps and short-circuits to avoid danger. All merchants, and their service providers, should therefore ensure that they comply with PCI DSS, and that they stay compliant.

"Target dates for compliance with the PCI DSS itself have all long since passed. Many organisations - particularly those that fall below the top tier of payment card transaction volumes - are not yet compliant", points out Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance. "This pocket guide is a handy reference tool which is ideal for those in the early stages of a PCI DSS project".

Key features of this pocket guide include an overview of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, its scope and compliance with the standard, and consequences of a breach along with a PCI self-assessment questionnaire.
