The 19th is getting closer, by Untitled blue

You’ve probably heard about it by now. Thanks to a friend doing business in Nevada, I was alerted to this new law last week. Nevada is now the second state to enact laws requiring companies to comply with PCI (though, arguably, the Massachusetts Identity Theft Prevention Regulations seemed to have been lifted at a high level from PCI), the first being Minnesota.

David Navetta has a great analysis from a legal perspective, and Chris Mark published his thoughts as well. One thing that is interesting about the Nevada law is an apparent Safe Harbor provision.

Will this added pressure force more religious views on payment security and compliance inside companies? Or will companies continue to roll the dice with their compliance?

You decide!
