30% off 2e2's PCI DSS Scoping Assessment until 31 December 2012
Meeting compliance is not a matter of bureaucracy but a proven method of improving security. The latest Verizon 2012 Data Breach Investigations Report showed that in 96% of the breach cases they investigated, the customer was not compliant with the PCI DSS standard.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) can be confusing and many organisations are uncertain of the level of compliance that’s required and in some instances which Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) to complete. To compound this the validation requirements are changing this June meaning that any organisation handling over 1 million MasterCard and Maestro transactions per annum must use qualified personnel to undertake their PCI DSS assessments.
Are you putting your organisation at risk of:
- Fines, increased fees or withdrawal of license? VISA Europe impose a minimum fine of €26,250 if confirmation of compliance status is not received within 120 days of notification, with an additional €26,250 accruing for every 30 days thereafter. Other cards brands may charge significantly more.
- Reputational and brand damage? In 2007, TJX Companies announced a security breach that compromised 45.6 million customer card numbers. The $40,863,000 fine imposed by Visa was made far worse by the reputational damage and brand impact.
PCI applies to any organisation that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data and finding the right partner to assist with both PCI compliance and data leakage prevention can be difficult due to the complexity and discreet nature of security programmes.
