Risky Business #102 -- Washington spanks PCI DSS
This week's Risky Business podcast is brought to you by MessageLabs, and hosted, as always, by Vigabyte virtual hosting.
On this week's show you'll hear some audio from a hearing in the US House of Representatives -- excerpts from the subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity, and Science and Technology Hearing. That hearing posed the question "Do the Payment Card Industry Data Standards Reduce Cybercrime?"
Apparently they don't.
There were some great thoughts and perspectives in that segment from the US House of Reps hearing.
I agree. I wasn't surprised that the retailers stuck the boot in, but I had no idea the politicians would actually "get it" to the extent they appeared to.
Will be interesting to see if we're relying on PCI DSS in a few years. I suspect we'll have moved to a 2FA-driven solution, so most card data will be worthless to an intruder. Time will tell.
Thanks for the comment!
