Credit Card Processing Compliance

Concord Compliance has the experience and expertise to help organizations in the Credit Card Processing industry.

Compliance management for the Credit Card Processing industry

The credit card processing industry is subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Enacted by the major credit card brands, this standard is designed to promote credit card transaction practices for merchants, financial services, and any business that collects, stores, and/or transmits credit card information. Failure to comply with PCI DSS can result in fines of up to $500,000 per incident for security breaches that expose credit card data.

Crucial requirements that apply to the Credit Card Processing industry

Maintain a Secure

PCI standards require that merchants and businesses install and maintain a firewall and refrain from using default system passwords in order to protect cardholder data.

Protect Cardholder

Entities that fall under the PCI DSS standards have the responsibility of protecting stored cardholder data and encrypting the transmission of cardholder data across unsecured networks.

Management Program

To develop an adequate vulnerability management program, PCI DSS standards require restricted access to both digital and physical cardholder data and each network user must be assigned a unique ID for future identification.

Regularly Monitor

Merchants and businesses are required to track and monitor all access to network resources/cardholder data and regularly test security systems and processes.

Maintain a Cybersecurity

To remain in compliance with PCI DSS standards, merchants and businesses must maintain a policy that addresses information security for employees and third parties.
