PCI Compliance

Meet PCI Compliance Requirements With Continuous Networks

If your business processes, transmits or stores credit card data, your business is subject to the Payment Card Data Security Standards or PCI DSS. It is a set of security guidelines, rules, and requirements designed to control costly data breaches and account theft across the industry. This comprehensive standard is intended to help businesses to proactively protect customer account data.

Who Needs to Be PCI-compliant?

As mentioned before, all businesses that accept credit cards must be PCI compliant. That means everyone from brick-and-mortar stores, to e-commerce shops, to financial and medical institutions. The regulations mandated by the credit card companies (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB) need to be adhered to. If you want your business to continue accepting revenue via credit card or debit card transactions, you must comply.

MERCHANTS

Any organization that accepts one or more of the five major credit cards that formed the PCI DSS council.

SERVICE PROVIDERS

Businesses that transmit, process, or store credit card information for other merchants.

PAYMENT APPLICATION

Devices or online shopping carts that transmit, processes, or store credit card information like credit card readers, e-commerce carts, or point-of-sale systems

PAYMENT GATEWAY/ PROCESSOR

The middleman for merchants and banks; these companies transmit data between a business running a credit card with a bank that either approves or denies a request for payment

Essentials for PCI Compliance

PCI DSS requirements can be broken down into six main goals. Miss one and your business could be fined and penalized by the PCI DSS.

  • Always maintain a secure physical network
  • Protect and safeguard customer data
  • Maintain a secure internal network
  • Limit data access to authorized staff
  • Monitor and test data security systems regularly
  • Educate staff on PCI compliance regulations
