It is in the news every day. Cybercriminals gain access to sensitive information. Customer records are stolen. No business of any size or type is immune to credit card theft, back-end hacking and network, account, and intrusion attacks. As security threats increase and regulatory requirements grow more complex, IT security and PCI DSS compliance are business-critical priorities.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security program designed to increase industry confidence and reduce the risks for PCI members, merchants, service providers, and consumers. It was originally established by Visa and MasterCard in 1999 after numerous data breaches resulted in unwanted media attention. Since then it has been adopted by other payment card providers. It is applicable regardless of transaction volume or method of transaction.
PCI DSS compliance can be achieved through a secure IT infrastructure. At Secunia we strive to provide comprehensive network security software that makes adapting and maintaining your system to adhere to compliance requirements easy.
Non-compliance can result in the following consequences: theft of confidential data, severe fines, loss of revenues and trust from the marketplace and financial sector, damage to reputation, and litigation if private information is exposed.
Secunia can help you with PCI DSS compliance. For example, Requirement 6 and its sub-sections: vulnerabilities to be ranked and prioritized according to risk
