Recent articles on compliance from the 2011 Verizon Payment Card Industry Compliance Report and 2011 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report say that retailers are content with getting to compliance but don’t consider continuous compliance as being important.

The reports also say that Level 1 and 2 merchants are better in their upkeep of compliance status than Levels 3 and 4.

They also take a much longer time to find out they are breached.
