If your company handles customer credit card payments from the likes of Visa, Mastercard and American Express, then it’s paramount that you keep that information securely.

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) has created a data security standard, explaining how firms and organisations can remain compliant- but the topic can sometimes be.. how shall I phrase this?.. a little dry.

Well, not any longer.

Well done to the makers of this video for making something engaging and fun about what could be a dull topic. I can imagine that this video will be shown in plenty of presentations, helping to educate people about the importance of securely handling payment card data.

Sophos has also put together information about how you can achieve PCI compliance and avoid data loss – although we haven’t done anything as cool as make a music video yet.
