Regardless of the size of your organization, if you accept credit cards, you need to be in full PCI compliance. Failure to follow these industry standards can lead not only to fines from the card issuers, but can leave you open to significant legal liability should sensitive data become exposed.
True North offers PCI compliance cloud services that will ensure your data is processed safely and securely. Our secure VMware environment coupled with state of the art data centers are the perfect mix to handle all of your PCI compliance needs.
What Is PCI Compliance?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a protocol put in place by the major card issuers to ensure that customer data is adequately protected. The ultimate aim is to reduce fraud and invest a layer of responsibility onto the merchant to safeguard sensitive data.
While there are levels of compliance required based on the size of the merchant organization, anyone who accepts payment cards is required to be PCI compliant.
For that reason, it’s beneficial to partner with a technology company experienced in providing PCI compliance assessments, helping you to know where you may be exposed and assist you in navigating the waters towards full PCI compliance.
