The article discusses the author's view on the impact of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard on the threats, cybersecurity and science and technology before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security's subcommittee. The author said that the standard is far more effective at securing confidential data than government-driven efforts. According to the author, organizations seeking to develop data-security services that go beyond PCI controls have a lot of options.
