PCI Compliance

About PCI Compliance

As the Payment Card Industry (PCI) rapidly expanded, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) developed a set of requirements called the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These specifications ensure all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. PCI applies to all organizations or merchants that accept, transmit or store cardholder data, regardless of size or number of transactions.

Are you PCI Compliant?

This list is by no means complete, but we can guarantee that if you answer “no” to even one of the following questions, then you are not PCI compliant:

  1. Have you installed and maintained a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data?
  2. Do you frequently use and update anti-virus software?
  3. Have you assigned a unique ID to each person with computer access?
  4. Do you restrict physical access to cardholder data?
  5. Do you track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data and regularly test security systems and processes?
