Should PCI auditors be prohibited from selling security services?
Interesting follow-on from the news of the lawsuit from Gartner analyst Avivah Litan, who says that while she thinks the PCI standard is good, the PCI enforcement process needs fixing.

Furthermore, she argues, assessors shouldn't be allowed to also sell security services to their clients: "Gartner has long argued that PCI qualified security assessors like Trustwave should not be allowed to sell remediation and ongoing security services as Trustwave did for Target, according to the lawsuit. This has the effect of potentially destroying the integrity and independence of the assessment process," she says in a blog post.

Compliance Does Not Mean Hack-Proof
I like PCI compliance.  It is a great fundamental step forard in security.  There is noting that says if you are compliant, you will not be breached.  Every company is different.  PCI DSS 3.0 12.2 says that companies have to implement a risk-assessment program.  Here is where the rubber really meets the road with security.  Each company needs to evaluate its own risks and respond.  I would recommend to Target and all other retailers that they demand that the card merchants provide boxes to process the card data so the retail network never sees the unencrypted card data.  The retailers would then shift the entire burden to the card merchants.
