PCI Wireless Compliance Demystified Best Practices for Retail
The introduction of wireless technologies in retail has created a new avenue for data breaches, circumventing traditional security architectures. Several recently publicized data breaches in the retail industry have exploited wireless vulnerabilities. Attackers have been able to access sensitive information such as credit/debit cards resulting in brand damage, financial/regulatory liabilities and retail business disruption. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) is now mandating stricter wireless security measures, and the cost of non-compliance is significant. This white paper discusses the new PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) wireless requirements and provides an executive summary of Motorola's Enterprise Wireless LAN solutions designed to provide out-of-the-box PCI compliance, robust wireless security and cost-effective compliance validation.
