Some  facts about Cisco and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)

The PCI DSS 2.0 standards was released in October 2010, applies to all businesses that processes, transmit or stores credit card information.

The new Cisco Design and Implemention Guide will include 30+ Cisco and technoogy partner products integrated and cofigured in  a simulated store environment that is being examined by an auditor to give us an assessment report.
