Reduce the cost of PCI DSS 3.0 Compliance

Recent high-profile, publicly disclosed data breaches have resulted in increased scrutiny of the security measures used to protect card holder data. The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance is a security framework created to prevent credit card fraud through increased protection of sensitive data. It applies to all companies who hold, process or pass cardholder data.

PCI DSS 3.0 is the most current revision and was published in November, 2013. PCI 3.0 becomes the audit standard in January, 2015, and has a number of new requirements important to protecting cardholder data. While avoiding the adoption of PCI standards can result in hefty non-compliance fees, business benefits of PCI DSS 3.0 compliance include operating a more secure network, protection of corporate brand and reputation, and reduced risk of successful data breaches and network attacks.

  • Detailed inventories of hardware and software, including version numbers, patch status and identification of non-PCI compliant configuration settings.
