Understanding and Achieving PCI DSS Compliance
Companies that process or store credit card data as part of their business are required to comply with the controls outlined in the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). Retail merchants with a substantial amount of volume (exceeding 20,000 credit card transactions in a year) are required to fulfill certain validation requirements to demonstrate PCI DSS compliance.
While PCI compliance is extremely complex, it doesn’t need to be a retail nightmare. Ease the burden of dealing with uncharted territory, intimidating auditors, endless regulations, and the possibility of fines and litigation. Obtain and maintain PCI compliance in the most cost-effective manner by allowing an expert IT services provider like Oxford Consulting Group to help along the way.
