In order to ensure credit card payment security, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) has defined a set of compliance requirements to safeguard credit card transactions and consumer personal and financial data under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
PCI DSS compliance is more than just satisfying a list of guidelines–it is a proven way to protect you and your customers’ data from outside attacks. Companies that are not PCI compliant significantly increase their risk of a breach and the likelihood of receiving a fine, which could be as high as $500,000 per incident, as well as risking the reputation of the company and brand.
The increasing complexity of enterprise IT environments continues to push the limits of internal security teams. Above Security can assist your team in ensuring your IT environment meets the business needs of your organization while complying with payment card industry standards and industry, international, state, and federal regulations.
