Ensure PCI DSS Compliance

Keep your users’ financial data secure while enhancing operational

PCI DSS – the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard – is one of the foundational regulatory frameworks on information security for organizations that process credit card payments.

Hackers will go to any length to uncover and exploit system vulnerabilities. Don’t let weak defenses leave you exposed.

Card transactions take seconds yet transmit highly-sensitive
information that organizations are obligated to safeguard.


While PCI DSS is not enforced through federal statute, most states either refer to it directly in their regulatory standards or employ very similar standards. Visa and Mastercard, the two largest credit card payment processing networks, impose fines on organizations that fail to comply with the PCI DSS standards.

Whether you are a government agency, a healthcare provider, or an educational institution, you most certainly process credit card payments. As such, you need to validate your compliance with the latest set of standards on a yearly basis. Version 3.2.1 became effective in January 2019. Is your organization in compliance?

Importance of PCI DSS compliance

Financial data is one of the most common records sold on the dark web. Access to these records allows hackers to complete payments or apply for credit cards, either themselves directory or sell it to others who will. By processing credit card payments – be it on premises or digitally – your organization assumes responsibility over the safety of this valuable information.

Organizations that fail to comply can be fined between $5,000 and $100,000 per month until full compliance is achieved. Failure to comply can also lead to a bank’s decision to completely terminate its business relationship with a violating organization.

Compliance with PCI DSS requires a comprehensive approach to data security. Requirements cover everything from firewall configurations, to the encrypted transmission of cardholder data, to restricting access to data, to regularly testing security systems and processes, and much more.
