   By measuring resource utilization:

  Are your projects and/or vendors delivering the results you expect?

 

PCI-DSS

   PCI compliance applies to every organization that accepts, processes, or stores credit card information -- making it the most common compliance initiative in the world today.

   DSS stands for the Data Security Standard, which is a major component of PCI compliance, but is often used as a de facto standard for governing data security for other compliance mandates such as HIPAA.

Why is this important to you?

Because even if PCI does not apply to your organization, it most likely applies to your customers and business partners, so incorporating this standard into corporate policies will ease the pain of submitting vendor risk assessments in the near future.

   metriQuality helps you serve PCI-compliant customers to preserve your customer base when they require PCI-compliant services.

   Data is difficult to control. Data moves, it morphs, it gets lost, it gets duplicated -- backed up and restored, distributed freely, or is bought and sold.

   Classifying data is even more challenging -- therefore, two categories are typically used: sensitive or public, protected or not, PCI-relevant or not. Limiting where PCI-relevant data is stored or processed helps reduce PCI audit scope and the associated cost of compliance.

    The best approach to PCI compliance involves strategic planning for data governance. Data governance involves knowing what your data assets are, where it is, and managing who or what accesses it, and for what purpose.
