Lessons Learned on the Road to PCI Compliance


Many of us are working within our institutions to achieve Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. We see a number of merchants on campuses with different business needs, systems, and vendor relationships in place. In many cases, achieving compliance with PCI DSS, the Data Security Standard, is proving difficult.

The presenters will share experiences and valuable lessons learned in implementing PCI DSS, including merchant levels (does it matter?), limiting the scope of the PCI effort (yes, it can be done), the Payment Applications Best Practices list (is it required?), and recent findings on information security breaches.

Welch and Conway will represent NACUBO and all of higher education at the first PCI Security Standards Council meeting of participating organizations to be held in Toronto next month. Bring your questions, suggestions, and observations to share with them in advance of that meeting.
