PCI DSS Requirement 12.1.2 emphasizes a need for a formal risk assessment methodology. Utilizing a risk assessment within your organization can be very helpful when determining whether to implement new technologies or determining the next steps in your on-going security process. A “set it and forget it” mentality is one of the biggest myths when it comes to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. A recent study showed that only 37% of companies in 2010 regularly test their security systems and processes. Unfortunately, this mindset creates the vulnerability that hackers seek out.
A January 2012 report revealed:
• Only 21% of companies were PCI Compliant at their initial risk assessment
• Companies met an average of 78% test procedures
This webinar will cover the process of implementing a Risk Assessment for your business and regularly capitalizing on the findings to create a secure environment and achieving PCI compliance. Learn how to take the first step in becoming PCI DSS compliant by eliminating the gaps in your company’s security that cyber criminals seek out.
