StarSwift Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) - PCI-DSS

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

The breach or theft of cardholder data affects the entire payment card ecosystem. Customers suddenly lose trust in merchants or financial institutions; their credit can be negatively affected - there is enormous personal fallout. Merchants and financial institutions lose credibility (and in turn, business), they are also subject to numerous financial liabilities

PCI Security Standards Council

PCI DSS Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

Any organisation that handles payment cards (including both debit and credit cards), must meet the requirements of the Standard.

PCI DSS compliance demonstrates a strong commitment to protecting your customer cardholder data.

The standard consists of a set of 12 requirements which were developed and maintained by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council. They cover six key areas:

 

  • Build and maintain a secure network

  • Protect cardholder data

  • Maintain a vulnerability management programme

  • Implement strong access control measures

  • Regularly monitor and test networks

  • Maintain an information security policy


We offer PCI DSS gap analysis, risk assessment, implementation, consultancy, scanning and audit services.
