What is PCI compliance?
Instituted and regulated by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), PCI compliance requires that all merchants who process, store and transmit with major card brands including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, abide by certain rules and follow strict requirements to ensure the security of bank data and to protect from cyber fraud.
Failure to comply puts the organization at risk of huge fines and losing the ability to process credit card payments, or worse, having to close the business down altogether.
The council also supports Payment Application security standards for software products that are installed and used locally by merchants to process, store or transmit credit card data. Software products that meet the Payment Application Data Security Standard have been validated as compliant with PCI DSS requirements and enable merchants to readily attain PCI compliance.
We help you reduce the risk of breach by passing annual PCI audits, focusing on daily operations, and maintaining your overall security position.
Our expert approach:
Understand the framework, define the scope of your compliance environment and develop a high-level plan.
Evaluate your security controls and receive detailed improvement recommendations.
Prepare to pass with a mock audit covering all PCI DSS requirements.
Rely on our PCI experts to create and implement your security strategy.
