I was shocked and saddened today to learn of the unexpected passing of David Taylor, founder of the PCI Knowledge Base. My deepest sympathy goes to his family.
Dave founded the PCI Knowledge Base, a research community that shares information to help organizations achieve PCI compliance, after a 14-year tenure as an analyst at Gartner Inc. He was a wealth of information for my articles on PCI and provided his expert advice in an article we published this summer. Dave was always ready to help and never shied away from expressing his opinions. I really enjoyed working with him and will miss him, as will the industry.
