    2018 Payment Security Report - Executive Summary

    The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been called the first of many data protection laws for the 21st Century. California has also beefed up its laws— other states and countries are likely to follow. Not since Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) has compliance had so much media coverage.

    This makes Verizon’s 2018 Payment Security Report on payment card security and compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) vital reading. Not just for those tasked with PCI DSS compliance, but anybody responsible for data security or compliance with any security standard, be it GDPR, HIPAA, FISMA, or something else.
