Submission + - Should Auditors Be Liable for Certifications? (channelinsider.com)

dasButcher writes: "Enterprises and mid-size business rely on auditors and service providers to certify their systems as compliant with such security regs and standards as PCI-DSS or SOX. But, as Larry Walsh speculates, a lawsuit filed by a bank against an auditor/managed service provider could change that (http://blogs.channelinsider.com/secure_channel/content/data_security/breach_lawsuit_could_reset_security_liabilities_to_service_providers.html). The bank wants to hold the auditor liable for a breach at its credit card processor because the auditor certified the processor as PCI compliant. If the bank wins, it could change the standards and liabilities of auditors and service providers in the delivery of security services."
