What is PCI DSS Compliance
For those that don’t know, here a little bit about what PCI DISS Compliance actually is…
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an industry standard and proprietary infosec standard for all types of organizations to facilitate cardholder data in a secure manner. PCI DSS affects major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM, and POS cards.
The main purpose of the PCI DSS standard was to reduce credit card fraud.
Validation of compliance is performed annually, either through an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) that complies a Report on Compliance (ROC) for companies handling large volumes of transactions, or, alternatively by Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) for companies handling smaller transactions and volumes.
PCI applies to ALL organizations or merchants, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data. Said another way, if any customer of that organization ever pays the merchant directly using a credit card or debit card, then the PCI DSS requirements apply.
Who should attend this webshow?
If you work in cyber security then you should have a working knowledge of PCI DSS and the implications and legal requirements of working with credit card information.
