Common PCI DSS Hospitality Myths
May 15, 2011
The PCI DSS standards are quite complete and as such may seem overwhelming especially for smaller individual hotels and chains that are missing standard security processes and measures common in other industries.
Having discussed the compliance requirements in depth with some hospitality IT professionals I have discovered that there are various common misperceptions related to PCI DSS generally within the hospitality IT audience.
With the intent to improve the general awareness of good data security practices in the hotel industry and prevent ever increasing frequency of credit card breaches, I have clarified the most common myths with a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and have eventually decided to share the outcome in this blog and also in the PCI DSS Compliance in Hospitality group discussion area on LinkedIn.
