My original concept was that simply complying once with a standard, provides momentary security. What companies need to do is maintain the ongoing operational management and security of their systems. There are a number of different things that companies need to do just to maintain the level of security required for compliance. This maintenance is what I believe you refer to by "a lot of extra safeguards".

No, I meant that PCI will take you a certain distance towards having a secure enterprise, but it's only aimed at keeping credit card information secure. There are any number of additional areas that have to be addresed to have a secure enterprise, from mail servers to the company forums to blogging. PCI doesn't cover everything, and it doesn't address your concerns about continuous security. That's what I meant by needing extra safeguards.
