PCI DSS Controls

PCI DSS is a standard that was created by the Security Standards Council over eleven years ago to protect cardholder data. It applies to any business who stores, processes or transmits cardholder data. Also known as the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), PCI DSS applies a strict set of requirements to the People, Processes and Technologies that operate within that environment. Each requirement set out within the standard requires regular audit and assessment as part of the compliance regime.

The Bunker has created a cost effective service suite that reduces the overheads of managing compliance, enabling customers to focus on evolving their business whilst meeting with the standard.

Is it right for me?

Whether you are a merchant, payment processor, payment gateway or ecommerce provider, you will need to ensure you are meeting the standard. As cardholder data has now been classified as personal data, the risks of not meeting the standard can now result in greater reputational damage due to breach notification under the EU regulation and large fines.

We can help you architect a solution that is right for your business and complies with the requirement outlined in the Standard.

PCI DSS forms part of The Bunker’s certification suite. Anyone who stores, processes or transmits card holder data MUST comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
