PCI Compliance - Is it important to you that Notes & Domino play nice in this space?

By Andrew Pollack on 02/15/2009 at 09:20 PM EST

If your company takes or stores credit card data, you may be required to meet PCI Compliance standards. Not all credit card processing requires this -- it has to do with the volume of transactions and other things. If you have to comply, you know what a challenge it can be.

I spent a good part of last week working on an issue which was related to PCI Compliance and data being stored in NSF databases. While I can't go into details right now due to NDA, there are a couple of things I'd like to press for in the way Notes and Domino does things which would make it far easier to meet the requirements set forth by the credit card companies.

I believe that with what should be fairly minor functional changes, the Notes client and Domino server could be the easiest tools in the industry to use for managing data in ways that meet the very specific PCI Compliance requirements. Keep in mind, it can be done now, but I think it could be a great deal easier.

Before I start lobbying really hard for this, I'd love to hear from you guys out there as to how big an issue this is for you. Any stories?

A couple of weeks ago I let the chief know that it was time for me to step down as the Lieutenant of our Engine 1. Once a replacement is chosen, I’ll still be a firefighter but won’t be an officer any longer. There are a number of reasons for this, but the best explanation I can give is that it is time to let someone else grow into that role and make their own contribution, while at the same time I’ve got plenty of other things going on that keep me from putting as much time ......
