No, all are required to be compliant. Only certain levels have to prove compliance. This is NOT the same thing.

Okay, so putting aside talk of how to secure environments, class action lawsuits and whatnot, the question you need to 
ask is: what tier is this organization classified under?  Only certain tiers are having their feet held to the flame so 
far.  Tier 1 and 2 organizations are required to be compliant (as of Sept. 30 and Dec 31st of last year, respectively) 
but to my knowledge that's it.  So, at least for now, if your organization is considered Tier 3 or below, they aren't 
at risk yet.  That said, for Tier 3/4 organizations, the impact of being found out of compliance (when the day comes) 
will be greater, since the penalties will probably constitute a larger percentage of their overall revenue.
