It is crucially important to demonstrate to your customers and stakeholders that you are committed to the highest levels of payment card protection. Instilling confidence that you have secure payments systems and compliance to PCI DSS is not only a business driver, but also a brand protector.
Verizon’s recent 2011 report on PCI compliance re-enforces this message. It found that 79% of organisations it assessed were not PCI compliant; and more worryingly
90% of organisations that were hit with a data breach were not PCI compliant.
The statistics speak for themselves.
At IT Governance we have created tools that can help you achieve PCI compliance quickly, and cost-effectively.
For those who know they need to comply, but lack the knowledge we have the
PCI Foundation Training Course. This course covers all the essential information you will need to understand the PCI requirements, what it means to your business and how to formulate a plan to become compliant.
If you are about to embark on a PCI compliance project you should consider our PCI Compliance Toolkit. It will guide you through the often difficult ‘Self-Assessment Questionnaire’ right through to creating a roadmap and implementation. The Toolkit provides easily customisable document templates which you will need to achieve compliance.
