The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become the industry standard that defines the security steps necessary for the protection of payment card customer data. Huntsman Security’s PCI DSS Compliance Guide helps you meet the challenge.
The requirements set by the standard are broad-reaching and require integration of IT systems and security solutions with policies and procedures.
PCI DSS Compliance – Key questions you need to answer
If your business strives to achieve PCI compliance knowing the answers to some fundamental questions will give you a good indication of how developed your organisation’s cyber resilience is:
- Who is accessing and using your data;
- What are they doing;
- Where are they taking it; and
- Whether their use is legitimate or not.
