Frequently Asked Questions
What is PCI DSS?
The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. The standard was created jointly by Visa and MasterCard in 2004 and has been adopted by the vast majority of the payments industry.
What are the requirements of PCI DSS?
The requirements of PCI DSS are extensive and can be intimidating, but they are necessary to protect your customers’ data. The 12 main requirements of PCI DSS are:
- Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data
- Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters
- Protect cardholder data
- Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks
- Use and regularly update anti-virus software
- Develop and maintain secure systems and applications
- Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
- Assign a unique ID to each person with significant responsibility for cardholder data security
- Track and monitor all access to cardholder data
- Regularly test security systems and processes
- Maintain a policy that addresses information security
- Enforce compliance with PCI DSS
How can I become PCI DSS compliant?
There are a number of steps you can take to become PCI DSS compliant, but the most important is to assess your current security posture and identify where you need to make improvements. The PCI Security Standards Council offers a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) to help you do this.
You can also work with a qualified security advisor to help you achieve and maintain compliance.
How long does PCI DSS compliance last?
PCI DSS compliance is an ongoing process, and you need to maintain compliance throughout the year. You will need to complete a new SAQ every year, and your security measures must be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that they meet the latest requirements.
Who needs to be PCI DSS compliant?
All companies that process, store or transmit credit card information must be PCI DSS compliant. This includes merchants of all sizes, as well as third-party service providers that support these merchants.
What are the consequences of not being PCI DSS compliant?
The consequences of not being PCI DSS compliant can be severe. You could face financial penalties, and your customers’ data could be compromised. In the worst case scenario, you could lose your ability to process credit cards altogether.
