Any company that processes card payments online have to comply to strict PCI regulations to ensure card data is secure.
PCI compliance refers to adherence to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) which was established to protect personal information during credit card transactions. PCI DSS Compliance is vital as it safeguards businesses from data breaches and associated fines, while ensuring customers' payment data remains secure and confidential. PCI DSS compliance fosters trust in online transactions.
Becoming PCI compliant begins with identifying your compliance level and completing the relevant Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). Next, vulnerabilities are pinpointed via scans by approved vendors and remedied through a strategic plan. Compliance is then validated through an Attestation of Compliance (AOC) or Report on Compliance (ROC). Remember, maintaining compliance is a continual process, requiring consistent monitoring and maintenance.
