Europe behind US in PCI compliance


Journalist Mathew Schwartz examines PCI compliance in Europe, noting that security breaches in North America and UK have appeared to spur more attention on PCI than most countries in the European Union. The lack of a “credit card culture” in mainland Europe could explain minimal interest and awareness of PCI, according to Schwartz, as well as the lack of a unified data breach notification requirement for the EU.  Will it take a major credit card breach to increase visibility and compliance requirements in Europe?  There’s nothing like a major scare to motivate organizations to take action.
