PCI-DSS: a Podcast Overview

Last week I had the opportunity of joining Pat Callahan, of Practical eCommerce, in a discussion about Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).

In this discussion we touch on the topics below, among others.

  1. What is PCI?
  2. Is it mandatory or voluntary?
  3. How can you tell if a site is adhering to PCI?
  4. How secure is credit card data?

The podcast can be found here.

PCI is one of those topics which has become particularly interesting in the past few months.  Every time there is a new story of data breaches and data theft, the question of security is raised.  Fortunately, and perhaps unfortunately, for those of us in the commerce industry there is a fairly well-defined set of rules to which we must adhere.

This adherence, however, can sometimes prove difficult.  Over the next few days, I plan to blog about methods of addressing compliance, PABP, new technology simplifying compliance issues, and some IP Commerce specific capabilities related to security.

Give the podcast a listen, and let me know if there are any other topics related to security and compliance that you would like me to address.  The comment form is below. . . Digg!
