Best Practices for Securely Storing and Transferring Data in the Cloud

| April 7, 2014 | Cloud Computing, Compliance

Let’s face it: For many companies that handle payment card data, the search for a safe and secure way to store and transfer information in the cloud hasn’t always led to a feeling of full-blown confidence. And, the reality of so many new breaches doesn’t help.

While the road to PCI compliance can seem long and daunting, it is possible – and with the right guidance, can be easier than you thought. So, for those feeling like pulling their hair out, worry not!

Check out this article in Retail Online Integration in which I outline four actions that are important to making PCI compliance a tangible and achievable reality:

  • Understand the difference between PCI compliance and certification,
  • Get the business involved,
  • Develop a plan, and
  • Make education a priority.

Retailers and other companies required to be PCI compliant, we’d love to hear from you – please share your experience or questions.
