If you are a merchant that processes credit and debit card transactions you will be aware of the importance of the protection of your customer’s data. As a merchant you are required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Failure to do so can incur huge financial penalties; with HSCB reporting an unnamed merchant being fined £100,000 last year.
However you should also consider the protection of your brand. If you suffer an incident the damage to your brand will affect the confidence of your customers and considerably impact on your ability to generate new business.
Becoming PCI DSS compliant is not as complicated or as expensive as you think. IT Governance has created the PCI DSS Compliance Toolkit which will guide your business through to compliance.
|PCI DSS v2.0 Documentation Compliance Toolkit
This toolkit contains documentation templates, implementation guidance, drafting support and 12 months of updates, allowing you to quickly become PCI compliant.
