The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), is the global compliance standard as dictated by the payment card industry.
Traditionally this was a compliance standard but has recently moved to a Progressive Steps Methodology to encourage smaller organisations to become compliant. We have worked with many clients to assist them in delivering or working towards compliance with the standard.
PCI DSS can be very intimidating but in our experience it is far more beneficial to engage with the standard and the payment providers as they are usually very supportive of all organisations trying to improve their Payment Card security.
We have access to some of the best PCI DSS QSA Consultants in the world, many of whom have worked with some of the world's largest organisations including financial, legal and eCommerce institutions. Our resources include extensive documentation - Policy/Procedure/Data Flow etc.
We strongly advocate the Progressive Steps Methodology as this significantly reduces the cost of compliance. We can also deploy Data Discovery software tools to identify Rogue Card data.
If you have any concerns around payment card data, or if you need to be compliant, please contact us for an informal discussion.
