Art of Compliance
The new Cisco Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) version 2.0 solution is designed to address the 12 PCI requirements. These requirements help protect your credit card data through compliance and security best practices.
Cisco hosted an "Art of Compliance" PCI art show in 2011 to help draw attention to the launch of the PCI DSS 2.0 solution. Each artist in this show was given a description of the solution, along with the 12 requirements, general networking information, and an overview of data security.
The art here represents their interpretations of this information. It also aims to provoke conversation, create awareness, and educate. Enjoy the show.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) version 2.0 is designed to provide greater clarity and flexibility to the requirements and ease implementation for merchants. Cisco can help you mitigate risk and build loyalty by safeguarding employee and customer data as well as managing your system as standards change in the future.
