PCI Compliance Solutions

According to the 2014 Unisys Security Index, abuse of credit card data and identity theft are the top two things that scare Americans most, superseding their concerns about war and/or terrorism, computer and health viruses and their own personal safety. Little wonder, then, that keeping customers’ personal information safe has become a top priority for merchants, credit card processors and credit card brands nationwide.

To that end, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) – an organization formed by the five major card brands – created the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These standards apply to any merchant or service provider who stores, processes or transmits customer account data. If a breach occurs and the merchant or provider is not PCI compliant, they face expensive fines and fees, a costly and possibly lengthy audit, as well as additional restrictions. All these factors can result in a severe blow to their professional reputation that could result in the loss of customers and, ultimately, their business.

Compliance 101 offers small and mid-sized businesses numerous affordable tools and professional support to become PCI compliant and maintain that status.

The Compliance 101 PCI Compliance Solutions arsenal includes:

The PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) – The first and most crucial step in the PCI compliance process. The SAQ is used to determine whether your business is already compliant. If it is not, there are additional steps you can take to achieve regulatory compliance under PCI DSS.

PCI Compliance Scanning – Network vulnerability and web application scans enable you to improve your data security and maintain PCI compliance. Detailed reports of the scan results prioritize vulnerabilities and identify remedial steps to get rid of them.
