Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a particular security standard for businesses that accept credit cards. 
Such businesses need to stay compliant with data security standards regulated by PCI Security Standards Council - an organization jointly formed by American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and JCB International.

With the increasing trend towards banks and credit card processing, PCI is becoming more and more important for businesses. It greatly helps businesses as it covers a lot of things, from data handling to protect against data theft, etc.

How PCI DSS helps businesses?

PCI DSS comes with enormous benefits for businesses. It helps with various day-to-day operations, such as:

Data handling

All the transaction and credited data are automatically compiled and put in the record by PCI DSS. With every credit card being scratched, the software makes a detailed data entry.

Programming and storing data

Another important benefit is that PCI ensures separate yet linked program execution and data storage. You need not worry about both things at the same time. Your software knows how to operate.

No Data Theft

Various PCI software is incapable of guarding against employee data theft. With every accurate entry, there’s no chance of any contradiction in the data.

No internet intrusions

With PCI DSS, you need not worry about internet-based intrusions. The software knows well how to guard against such intrusions to save your data.

Disposing of hard drives

Now, there’s a great solution to proper disposal of hard drives. With PCI DSS, your hard drives will be disposed of off properly not to be exploited by a third party.

Tracking human access

PCI DSS offers to track human access to hardware. This way, you can keep a check on employee access to data and get to know any mismanagement.

PCI DSS Services We Provide

PCI is divided into 4 levels depending upon Visa or MasterCard transactions per year. While level 4 is the lowest with lesser than 20,000 transactions, level 1 can handle more than 600,000 transactions annually. Accordingly, you need to know which level your business falls in.

Verification of compliance

For all the levels, we offer verification of compliance once you are done with the audit.

Preparation and Certification Pass

So as you prepare for the verification and once you figure out that you comply with PCI DSS, you need a preparation and certification pass. FortySeven Professionals provide the pass to your business, which shows you are PCI DSS compliant.
