A new online tool has been launched to help users identify large merchants and hotels that have exposed credit card data and other personal information to hackers, Inside Counsel reports. PrivacyAtlas.com allows users to search through 39,000 hotel and motel locations as well as 28,000 chain stores. Security Validation President and CEO David Durko said, “Consumers want to know how safe their credit card data is when it’s shared with hotels, retail stores or online.” The tool assesses whether a given retailer is PCI-DSS compliant. For businesses, participation with PrivacyAtlas is voluntary, but those that choose not to disclose their compliance status with the site receive a “black mark.”
