PCI DSS v3.0 Compliance

Payment Card Industry Digital Security Standards (PCI DSS) are a set of standards that are designed to protect you and your customers from credit card theft. The standard includes 12 requirements that form a framework for secure payment environments.

From January 2015, VISA will be enforcing PCI DSS v3.0 standards with a particular focus on:-

• Education and awareness
• Integrating PCI DSS within BAU activities
• Clear areas of responsibility between supplier and consumer

Who needs PCIDSS v3.0 compliance?

Any business that stores, transmits or processes data is required to be PCI DSS v3.0 compliant for all 12 requirements. Non-compliance fees are expensive but a breach would mean fines of approximately £100 per credit card not to mention the catastrophic damage to your business reputation and brand. A risk no business can afford to take.

The majority of Service Providers only have ‘Hosting Provider’ status and comply with only 2 out of the 12 requirements leaving you to manage the rest. A common pitfall that can lead to fines or a costly breach.
