Heartland Comes Out Swinging After Data Breach – Business Center – PC World

In the months following the disclosure of what may be the largest data breach in US history, Robert O. Carr, chairman and CEO of Heartland, has come out swinging. Instead of going into a near-death spiral of damage control mitigating the revelation that 100 million customer records leaked during 2008, Carr has been pointing the finger at the payment industry itself for not going far enough with best practices. Heartland has taken advantage of several merchant associations to promote new initiatives that could revolutionize the payment card industry beyond PCI DSS compliance.
