Gearing up for 2022: PCI Pal Releases Top-Level Insights To Prepare Businesses for a New Year of Cyber Crime

November 22, 2021 GMT

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 22, 2021--

PCI Pal (LON: PCIP) - If there is one word that has been cemented into our heads over the course of the pandemic, it has been “unprecedented.” And while we saw a lot of new challenges pop up, they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon and will likely grow in number and complexity. With WFH still the norm for many companies, 2021 should’ve been the year that businesses cemented their digital practices, ensuring that security was woven into each process given the consistent news around data breaches. However, it’s clear that there’s a lot more work to be done and as we enter 2022 and the unprecedented situation continues, the expectations are set. Consumers want businesses to ensure their payments are safe, and businesses need to have a concrete game plan in motion to make consumers feel secure. With this in mind, PCI Pal’s CISO Geoff Forsyth outlines his predictions and considerations for the new year:


You can look at financial fraud like garden weeds: Weeds grow slowly over time, stripping away the life from smaller, less-resilient plants until they grow too large and noticeable. Even if the roots of that weed are fully destroyed, the seeds of other invasive or parasitic species remain and the garden remains a paradise of nutrients to steal. Akin to weeds, fraud will always be present, and though attacks by governments on major criminal rings can scatter or shut down a large volume of fraud, they don’t make the issue disappear. Our solutions to alleviating fraud have been tentative, while the issue keeps growing more vicious. In 2022, it’s time to get serious about cybersecurity - there’s no longer an excuse.
