What is Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI/DSS)?
We help businesses achieve full PCI compliance certification. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance ensures that businesses that conduct credit card transactions have measures in place to protect their customers from card theft and incidences of fraud. If you run a business that accepts, transmits, or stores customer card data, then you must have PCI DSS compliance validation from major card brands such as Visa, Discover, American Express, and MasterCard.
PCI DSS compliance is managed and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) which was launched in 2006. The compliance applies to all companies and organizations that handle cardholder data, notwithstanding the number of times the customer conducts a financial transaction using the data. It is important for both small and large businesses to have PCI compliance to avoid penalties.
We help businesses develop PCI DSS compliant payment solutions to not only avoid penalties but to increase customer trust and confidence as well. Our PCI compliance experts will work with your IT team to implement the required policies by identifying cardholder information risks and providing you with expert guidance to avert the risks.
Is PCI Compliance Sufficient Security?
PCI compliance doesn’t necessarily mean that you have good security. The data security standard refers to the minimum-security requirement that your business or organization should have in order to process, transmit, and store cardholder data. Compliance simply means that the organization has satisfied the requisite requirements but it’s not completely secure.
