Rudet Fountain, VP of NACM Relations at United TranzActions, said the breach should serve as a warning bell for those in the business credit world.
"Thieves are looking for data anywhere they can get it," said Fountain. "For whatever reason, some companies seem to think they have a choice in or options about PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). Quite frankly, they don't. We all do have an obligation; I don't care how big you are."
Fountain, moderator of the "FAQ on Credit Card Processing" session at NACM's Credit Congress in Nashville, later added the breach "is going to cost Sony big time, even if no one uses the data.
Fountain believes the biggest risk could be hiding in what appears to be little more than a cluttered desk.
"Statistics show that 80% of these breaches still occur in the brick and mortar environment...and the biggest I see is information on applications that are just lying on desks," Fountain said of credit departments he's passed through in recent months and years.
"A breach of any kind says something about your data security," Fountain warned.

"It's changing folks, whether we like it or not," said Rudet Fountain, national sales manager at American Check Management (ACM)."We're kind of powerless.There are a lot of forces driving the trend and unfortunately it's not our companies, nor is it us individually."
The trend to which Fountain refers is the ongoing move toward predominantly paperless business and the increasingly frequent use of payment instruments like electronic funds transfer (EFT), B2B credit cards and automated clearing house (ACH) payments.The development of paperless business has already proven its worth in the consumer arena and its growth in the business world has been greatly influenced by the consumers, banks and, most notably, the federal government.
One specific event that pushed the government further toward paperless business was the series of attacks carried out on September 11, 2001.Not only were nearly 3,000 lives lost that day, but all planes were grounded, the New York Stock Exchange was closed and, in essence, the country shut down for five or six days."All of the sudden it was even more magnified because this country came to a screeching halt," said Fountain.
"Say John Smith writes a check," said Fountain."Is John Smith authorized to give you permission to convert that check?It might be John Smith Enterprises and even then he might not be authorized to do that."Due to questions of account and business ownership, Check21 has yet to have a real effect on the B2B market.Still, it indicates the government's distaste for paper checks and their eye is currently set on encouraging business to go paperless."The feds think that by 2010, more B2B payments are going to be made electronically than by paper check," said Fountain.
