PCI compliance refers to PCI Security Standards set by the major credit card brands (e.g. Mastercard, Visa, AmEx) to protect cardholder data. These are technical and operational standards. If your organization accepts credit cards, you are required to be PCI compliant. Non-compliance can lead to significant fines and loss of credit card processing privileges.
The standards focus on implementing security best practices, and specific requirements are based to some degree on the size of your organization. You can learn more about PCI compliance at the Council’s web site: PCI Security Standards Council.
While you can ensure compliance by using the information at the above site and communicating with your credit card processing company, many organizations find it is a lot easier to work with an outside company, such as Skyriver IT, to help them navigate all of the requirements.
Whether you choose Skyriver IT to help or not, it is important to make sure you are in compliance with the standards.
