IT Security Tip: Is my PCI compliance good enough to serve as a network cyber security audit?

Most businesses typically need to conduct a network security audit at the same time they conduct a PCI audit. The PCI regulations have gone a long way toward making every business that accepts credit cards more secure, because it’s a threat to the payment industry to have unsecured businesses responsible for millions in fraudulent charges. A good network security audit at the same time as your PCI audit typically provides for a balanced scale when weighing security and functionality.
