We wonder if others in the group are familiar with the 'Payment Card 
Industry Data Security Standard' and if so does anyone have any 
experience of being audited or gaining compliance certification for any 
customer apps they are hosting?

Here is a direct quote from our client's email "all companies which 
handle credit card data must be PCI DSS compliant by the end of March. 
This is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard which all 
companies have to comply with. It’s all really technical but the main 
point is that if you are not compliant then the responsibility for any 
fraud sits you with you and not with the banks"

Here is a link: http://www.itgovernance.co.uk/pci_dss.aspx

The issue of 'responsibility for fraud' certainly raises some 
interesting contractual questions about the consequences of hosting 
customer data - especially credit card data.
