The PCI in the Cloud Paradox
What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object? We might all have a chance to find out.
In the last baysec I learned that handling credit card transactions in the cloud automatically makes you non-compliant with PCI. Assuming:
1. PCI is here to stay (“an immovable object”)
2. ‘Everything’ will move to the cloud (“an irresistible force”)
We reach a paradox.
Did the gods of security create a stone they cannot lift?
