Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard
If you are a business that takes credit or debit card payments, no matter how big or small you are, you will need to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS helps you process card payments securely and reduce card fraud.
If you suffer a data breach and lose card data, and you are not PCI DSS compliant, you could incur fines for the loss of this data and the operational costs associated with replacing the accounts. And with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) looming, the penalties for taking inadequate precautions are about to get worse for many organisations.
We can help you become PCI DSS compliant by establishing the necessary security controls in your systems that are connected to cardholder data. This can involve building and maintaining a secure network, installing firewalls, encrypting the transmissions of cardholder data, and regular vulnerability assessments and penetration testing.
The cyber security benefits associated with maintaining PCI compliance are vital to the long-term success of all merchants who process card payments. It also improves your overall security posture through the continual identification of threats and vulnerabilities that could potentially impact your organisation.
