The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established to help businesses process card payments more securely and reduce fraud by enforcing tighter controls surrounding the storage, transmission and processing of sensitive cardholder data.
This applies to any company that accepts card payments, regardless of size.
PCI DSS is a widely accepted set of policies and procedures intended to optimise the security of card transactions and protect cardholders against misuse of their personal information. There are 12 requirements, divided into six logically related groups, which make up the 'control objectives'.
If your company intends to accept credit card payment, and needs to store, process and transmit cardholder data, you need to host your data securely with a PCI compliant hosting provider.
We can ascertain the extent to which your organisation meets internal compliance objectives that satisfy the requirements of the standard, and provide support to address any non-compliance areas.
