Only 50% of IT decision makers in US finance sector organisations told us they were SOX compliant. Among those in organisations of over 10,000 (and therefore more likely to be publicly listed), 78% told us they were compliant.
PCI DSS Compliance
Most businesses make card payment transactions, but the sectors where these tend to be high volume and PCI compliance is more important are naturally retail and finance. However, only 27% of IT professionals in retail businesses across the UK and the US told us they were PCI compliant, with 50% saying they didn’t know if they were or not. Finance was even worse, with 52% saying they didn’t know, and only 19% stating they were compliant.
