Heartland and RBS De-listed From PCI List

This Tech Target article explains that RBS and Heartland have “got some splainin’ to do.”“In a statement released Friday, Visa said it was removing the payment processors based on “compromise event findings.” RBS WorldPay’s disclosure on Dec. 23 that it was breached was followed by Heartland’s Jan. 20 announcement that hackers broke into its systems.”

It pleases me to see some sort of repercussion for security risks and compromises here. I hope that this really shakes them up and, more importantly, wakes them up.
