What Do You Think About the Credit Card Standard?

As we research a follow-up article to our Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) story from May, I wonder how many of you are even aware of this standard. Did you read the May story ("Time to Comply") about this? If so, what did you think? Has the industry done enough to make you aware of this and educate you about what you need to do? Minnesota has a law now about breach of security for credit cards that, while it doesn't mention the PCI DSS, it parallels some of the requirements there. Three other states (California, Texas and Massachussets) are looking at similar laws. It could be something that even more states will look at in the near future. Is our industry doing enough to educate fitness facility owners about this? Let us know what you think. - Pam
