Working together, the major payment card providers have developed a set of data security standards and created a council for enforcing them. Although the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become a global requirement, many organizations are lagging in compliance.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security program created to increase confidence in the payment card industry and reduce risks to PCI members, merchants, service providers and consumers. It was developed by the major credit card companies as a guideline to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud.
All enterprises dealing with private data in test environments should mask or generate test data to comply with regulations such as Payment Card Industry (PCI), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and European Union (EU) as well as to protect against internal and external attacks.
All merchants and service providers that handle, transmit, store, or process information concerning credit cards are required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards requirements (PCI), or face contract penalties or even termination by the credit card issuers. This paper discusses the 12 requirements of PCI, and how Secure Computing's portfolio of security solutions can help enterprises meet and exceed them.
With the recent rise in data breaches and identity thefts, implementing a sound information security program is no longer optional. Companies processing credit card information are encouraged to embrace and implement sound data protection strategies to protect the confidentiality and integrity of payment information. Some of the challenges for achieving PCI compliance are outlined in this white paper, as well as successful tips to help organizations navigate through them.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard requires merchants and transaction processors to protect customer data, and firewalls play a major role in the process. This paper was written by Matt Sarrello, CISSP, contributing editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise and Michael Steinhart, senior editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise.
Data integrity and ultra-high performance dictate the success and growth of many companies.
One of these companies is BridgePay Network Solutions, a recently launched and rapidly growing financial services organization that allows merchants around the world to process millions of daily credit card transactions. Due to the nature of their business, their IT team needed to strike the perfect balance between meeting regulatory-mandated data security measures with the lowest possible levels of latency and response times.
As their growth accelerated, BridgePay realized the need to immediately address infrastructure shortcomings and prepare for their future growth.
Download the case study now and see how BridgePay built a competitive advantage and scaled transactions by 500% in the same storage footprint using some of the most advanced and differentiated technology available today.
As incidents of identity theft and fraud skyrocket, companies are scrambling to keep up with complex attacks and effectively safeguard consumer information. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, comprehensive visibility, actionable intelligence and the ability to respond rapidly to threats has become paramount.
In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach.
