PCI DSS Compliance

PCI compliance helps businesses to reduce and minimize the risk of their payment systems from getting breached and theft of cardholder data.

PCI DSS compliance is one of the most stringent and most coveted security standard in the industry today

It is applicable to any organization that accepts, stores, processes and/or transmits cardholder data. Whether you are a merchant, acquirer bank, credit card processor, payment card brand (such as Mastercard, VISA, JCB, American Express, Discover, Rupay, UnionPay, etc.) debit, credit or ATM cards issuer, financial institution, Independent Sales Organization (ISO), or an agent, PCI Compliance will be crucial for your business.

Why is it required?

Required Global Standard

While PCI DSS compliance is a required standard for any company that accepts, stores, processes and/or transmits cardholder data, yet there are certain differences in the requirements for each company based on its annual number of payment transactions which involves the cardholders physical card or card data. Depending on your business size and annual payment transactions, SISA can help you secure your business in the best possible manner.

Secure Payments are a must

The threat of cyber-attacks does not depend on the size of business but how easy it is to get into the systems. Just because it’s a small business and performs low numbers of card transactions, if your defenses are low, you may experience a breach that may result in the loss of customers’ trust and brand goodwill. You may even run the risk of going out of business. Therefore, you must secure your payment systems in a cost-effective yet reliable way to defend your transaction channels and your customers card data.

Sustainable security program

For large enterprises, there will be more specific compliance goals and a complex IT infrastructure. The enterprise will be required to implement PCI compliance, not as a one-time activity, but to create a sustainable compliance security program that involves detailed documentation, right tools, continuous planning and monitoring to secure and minimizing the breach.
