Heartland PCI certified, what about RBS Worldpay?

Hi everyone,

I noticed that Computerworld were reporting that Heartlands have been able to get there PCI Compliant status back after their data breach which could still yet be the largest ever.

It means that after both Heartlands and RBS Worldpay were stripped of their compliance status only one of them has been able to regain it so far, I wonder how much longer RBS Worldpay will be allowed to process card transactions for even though they aren’t compliant?

Kind of makes a mockery of PCI really, lose your data, lose your compliant status and you can still process transactions – why bother in the first place then?
