According to a new report released by Verizon, nearly half of global organizations aren’t maintaining compliance with the PCI DSS Compliance standard.
This finding comes from the 2017 Verizon Payment Security Report, which is compiled from interviews with several financial services, IT services, hospitality, and retail organizations.
For the first time ever, 55% of organizations were fully compliant at their interim validation, but that still leaves 45% of organizations unprepared for a possible data breach. Those within the hospitality industry were the worst offenders, with only 43% achieving fill PCI DSS Compliance, followed by retail (50%) and financial services (59%).
This news is unsettling at best considering every organization dealing with payment card transactions must adhere to the PCI DSS standard, the standard that calls for a wide range of security measures. NNT makes achieving PCI DSS compliance simple by combining Device Hardening, File Integrity Monitoring, Event Log Management, and Change & Configuration Management into one easy to use solution.
