pci-expanding-to-europe

According to Security Fix Visa is going to enforce PCI DSS in Europe:

Visa Inc. on Monday dramatically expanded its credit and debit card security requirements to retailers in Europe, an unexpected move that could be a financial boon to security auditing companies, but a huge cost for European merchants already feeling the pinch from the global financial crisis.
I'm fascinated that this is a surprise. My reaction was, "hmm I would have thought the PCI already applied in Europe".

Websense has published a report that says that phishers are increasingly targeting smaller European banks over their larger American cousins. While not scientific, it is interesting.

phishers-targeting-commercial-accounts

Today I receieved a phish that is targeting commercial accounts of BB&T. It's interesting because it will be much harder to do transaction analysis fraud prevention on commercial accounts (same for brokerage accounts) and the email used a pending 'security device' roll-out as the premise for needing the information.
