PCI DSS certification guarantees the security of card data in your organization. You obtain a PCI DSS certification by complying with the requirements of the PCI SSC.
The requirements include a number of best practices, such as:
❯ Installing firewalls;
❯ Transferring data in encrypted form
❯ Using anti-virus software
❯ Limiting access to cardholder data
❯ Monitoring access to network resources
The certificate shows that your company has passed an in-depth audit and it demonstrably takes strict measures to protect cardholders’ data.
Being PCI DSS compliant as a company shows your customers that their transactions with you are safe. Also, the possibility of fines for non-compliance provides a good incentive to take data security seriously.
PCI certification is considered the best way to protect sensitive data. This helps you build a long-lasting, trustful relationship with your customers.
