As someone whose business deals in credit cards, you likely know that new PCI DSS updates are on the way for Oct. 31, 2016.

In addition, a number of “recommended best practices” became requirements last July. Those new requirements from last year included:

  • Penetration testing
  • System inventory
  • Strong authentication
  • Antimalware enforcement
  • Stronger password rules

The latter is especially appropriate, since 63% of confirmed data breaches in 2015 involved weak, default or stolen passwords.*
