Why do you need to have PCI compliance?

Because it is mandated by credit card companies like Visa Inc., MasterCard, Discover Financial Services, American Express and more. The fundamental purpose is to protect card data from hackers and ensure card security.

Regardless of whether you are a sole proprietor or a Fortune 50 company, as long as you run purchasing cards like credit or debit cards, you are obligated to comply with the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standards), which is a set of security standards designed to ensure a secure card transaction environment.

There are five key benefits of PCI-DSS compliance:

  • Prevents data security breaches and client information loss.

  • Improves customer trust and relationships with a good brand reputation.

  • Brings in more happy customers and stronger loyalty.

  • Avoids costly penalties and other liabilities of non-compliance.

  • Sustains your business with global operation and security standards.

How do you comply?

PCI compliance is a critical and comprehensive process. At a high-level overview, PCI compliance has various requirements:

  • A firewall needs to be installed and maintained to protect cardholder data.

  • You need to create unique system passwords and other security parameters.

  • You must take measures to protect cardholder data in storage.

  • When transmitting cardholder data across public networks, encryption is required.

  • Anti-virus software must be installed in all service-related devices and equipment.

  • All systems and applications need end-to-end security protection.

  • You need to restrict both physical and electronic access to cardholder data as necessary. Each person with computer access must have a unique ID and proper restrictions.

  • All access records to network resources and cardholder data must be tracked and monitored.

  • You must run regular security system and process tests to fix gaps and glitches.

  • You need to develop, enforce and maintain an information security policy in the organization.

The goals of these requirements are to make sure you understand PCI data security standards and to help you best implement them in your organization. Feel quite overwhelmed? Don’t worry.
