Verizon's 2017 Payment Security Report
Nearly half (44.6%) of companies failed to protect payment card data on an ongoing basis. Despite the dangers, Verizon’s research shows that while PCI DSS compliance is improving, even among the companies that pass validation, nearly half fall out of compliance within a year—and many much sooner. This report delves into the detail of payment security and specifically PCI DSS compliance. It is the only major industry publication based on data from real compliance validation assessments, conducted worldwide by Verizon. The inclusion of insights on companies suffering payment data breaches from our Data Breach Investigations Report makes it a unique resource for compliance professionals.
