Security First: PCI Compliance Second

Which comes first? The chicken or the egg? Compliance or Security? Many organizations focus on compliance first since there are specific guidelines and fines associated with non-compliance. Too often compliance initiatives narrow the scope to only the areas that the regulation is focused on such as “cardholder data”.

By following a “security first, compliance second” approach, organizations can be sure that all data, not just cardholder data, for example, is taken into consideration. Security is part of a daily routine and a “business as usual” practice rather than a point in time audit. When you live, breathe, and practice security, PCI compliance will become second nature and a component of your entire security strategy.
