Zaxby’s Data Breach – PCI Compliant

ATHENS, Ga. — Zaxby’s Franchising Inc. says a computer data breach has occurred at a number of its stores, including more than 40 in Georgia, and that malware files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers.

The Athens, Ga.-based restaurant chain said in a press release on its website that credit card processing companies identified certain Zaxby’s locations as common points of purchase for some fraudulent credit card activity.

The press release says, “Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. assisted those stores in reviewing the issue, and during the course of the investigation identified some suspicious malware files on the licensees’ computer systems at several Zaxby’s locations. Because those malware files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers, Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. informed appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity. Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. is working with all of its store locations to implement additional security measures to prevent further intrusions.”

Computer Hacking Liability – Are You At Risk?

I had the great honor yesterday to speak at the InnoVision Forum on Computer Hacking Liability – Are You At Risk?.

We put together a presentation on our patent pending Firewall called “The Wall”. I have included that presentation in this post. Here is a look at the presentation:

What is PCI Compliance? PCI Compliance is now required for all business no matter how large or small.

Myths About PCI

•I can wait until my bank asks me to be PCI compliant.
•I don’t use a POS system I don’t need to be compliant.
•The software I use is PCI Compliant
•PCI is a law created by the credit card companies.
•The fines or fees are not that expensive.
•There is no state or federal regulation.

PCI Compliant Requirements

LVT’s PCI Compliant requirements are derived from a 69 page document that was created in October of 2010 by the PCI Security Council. Liquid Video Technologies secures your network so that your business is PCI compliant.

Here are just a few of the rules that you need to comply with in order for you network to be PCI compliant.

First and foremost you must have double authentication to gain access to your router or any device that is behind your Firewall. This includes but not limited to Remote Desktop Application, Accessing Web Based Devices for Music, Accessing Security Cameras and  all ports must be closed, we have patent pending process for Double Authentication.

·         Must meet some or all requirements from 1.1 to 12.9.6, this is 69 pages that are required in some form or fashion. There are over 157 individual requirements

·         Must have logging sever the records all transaction for up to a year and be able to present then if an audit occurs – Section 10.4.3 to 11.1

·         All ports must be closed at all times, or you will fail your scan from Tustwave or one of the other dozen scan companies that are out there, but you still need access to your cameras, computers, web devices, firewall, and routers. LVT – has created a proprietary and patent pending method to accomplish this along with double authentication.

·         Must maintain and update firewall configuration and have a process in place to maintain the firewall on a monthly basis / weekly basis.

·         Must update rules and regulations to firewall and any new threats on a daily basis.
