PCI/DSS Compliance

Your Security Matters To Us

What Is PCI Compliance

The PCI Security Standards Council touches the lives of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. A global organization, it maintains, evolves, and promotes Payment Card Industry standards for the safety of cardholder data across the globe

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security initiative. PCI DSS is a set of mandatory requirements that apply to all businesses taking credit and debit card payments and is designed to protect the security of your business, your customers, and the bank

PCI Compliance ensures card data processing and storage is secure, protecting against fraud and other financial crime

What Will I Gain From Being PCI Compliant

Being compliant will not stop fraudsters from targeting your business, but it will place you in the strongest position to prevent an attack and avoid the financial penalties and potential long term damage that can occur to your business as a result

We recommend that all merchants comply with the PCI Data Security Standards as it protects your business and gives you peace of mind. Failure to comply can have serious long-term consequences

If there is a security breach of data from within your organization, and you are not able to demonstrate PCI DSS compliance, you could be liable for any losses that arise and could face a substantial fine imposed by the Card Schemes, or a ban on accepting cards altogether
