Joe Angelastri woke up one morning to a rather rude shock – MasterCard Inc. had ordered him to conduct a $22,000 worth investigation at his own expense in response to a security breach that was tracked down to the cash registers in his magazine shop. Joe was like any other small business owner that thought security breaches would only happen in bigger corporations. “Who would want to break into us?” asked Joe in complete disbelief. What many do not realize is that smaller organizations are becoming easy targets for cyber thieves since they hold highly sensitive financial data but do not have sophisticated security infrastructure.
According to a recent study by Ponemon Institute data breaches increased in the last two years but organizations that were PCI Compliant had significantly fewer breaches than those that were not. And yet only 12% of the organizations believed that PCI Compliance reduced data loss or theft. Clearly there is lack of awareness about how important and critical PCI Compliance is, which seems to be the biggest factor against the adoption of PCI Compliance standards.
