The Essentials of Encryption

“The ability to spread knowledge and inspire action are two of man’s greatest gifts” -Unknown

Welcome to the third installment of my data breach prevention/PCI compliance Tip of the Week blog series!

Recently, a very large software company has come under fire after discovering a data breach in one of its servers in India. The dissent this particular breach event has drawn is not rooted in how the attack was carried out, but in the lack of data security on those servers. The customer information that was taken in the data breach was stored in plain text. Sensitive customer information (including identifying and password information) was not encrypted. This company is not alone. The sad truth is that as more and more data breaches occur, the inadequate security measures of...

I'm doing a weekly blog summarizing some key observations. My objective with this blog is to bolster knowledge, dispel myths, and spread valuable information on various topics within the PCI compliance realm.

Data Breach Prevention/PCI compliance Tip of the Week: Change your default passwords!

A stifling amount of large data breaches involving sensitive information center around a common and highly preventable mistake; not changing default passwords!

PCI Compliance Observations From The Front Lines

My name is Jorge Flores, and I’m an Account Development Specialist at ANX.  I began my career at ANX several months ago after graduating from Western Michigan University.  Each day I speak with dozens of franchise business owners and management staff about the need for PCI Compliance.  It is extremely rewarding when I hang up with someone knowing that I bolstered their knowledge on the importance of achieving and maintaining PCI compliance.
