Another victim has emerged with hacked pin pads. This time it is Barnes and Noble that has had 63 stores with compromised devices. Stories like this outline the need for strong adherence to PCI guidelines around securing your credit info. PCI Security Council Requirements Section 9.2 – 9.4 dictates rules for anyone that enters the store that could potentially come in contact with areas or equipment where credit card information is accessible. Also of great concern are reports that the shift in attacks are shifting to smaller firms where standards, security and procedures may not be as strong. If you have concerns with your stores security or have questions regarding PCI please contact your local RDS Office.
