PCI DSS Compliance
Adopt best practices to improve accountability and communication

 

PCI DSS Compliance Solution

Incidents related to payment card data theft and misuse have forced the payment card industry to introduce preventative measures and reduce fraud. Online merchants or any entity who stores, transmits, or processes credit card numbers has to be compliant with PCI DSS standards. The PCI DSS framework provides network security and business practice guidelines to protect customers' payment card information. The standard has classified 6 broad compliance requirements and 12 sub requirements.

Organizations have to ensure that their compliance initiatives support effective security controls, issue management systems, control assessments, and risk management of IT systems, to prevent security breaches and protect critical card holder data.
