New to PCI Compliance? Start Here

If you are new to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, the topic can be somewhat confusing. Learning the terms, navigating requirements, and understanding what is in scope is no easy feat. If your organization accepts, transmits, or stores any card holder data, it is important to know the basics.

To help you on your way, one of our partners, FoxyCart, has put together a primer on PCI DSS Compliance. In easy-to-understand terms, the ebook covers:

  • What is PCI compliance?
  • How can you minimize your burden?
  • What common myths need to be debunked?

Lesson on Tokenization

We see signs every day that inform us about safety measures an organization is taking. We have all seen these examples:

  • “Premises protected by video surveillance.”
  • “This vehicle stops at all railroad crossings.”
  • “Driver carries less than $100 in cash.”
  • “Caution: Wet floor”

These types of signs are common in business. They show customers, partners, and employees what’s being done to protect the business and help reduce the organization’s risk and liability.

The Path to EMV in the U.S.

EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) has been on everyone’s radar for a while now, but recent data breaches and impending deadlines is making EMV a top priority for merchants.

What is EMV?

EMV® is a global standard for secure credit and debit payment cards based on chip card technology, already in use throughout the world. Also referred to as chip and PIN or chip and signature, EMV-capable bank cards feature an embedded microprocessor chip that contains the cardholder data.

Don’t Become a Target for Payment Data Theft

As if the recent data compromises affecting more than 115,000,000 cardholders among Target, Neiman Marcus, Michaels, Aaron Brothers, Marriott and Sheraton, to name a few, are not enough, experts are predicting data breaches may increase in 2014.[1] Are your payment security measures as strong as they could be?  Wash away all the marketing hype and hyperbole, and learn why TrustCommerce clients rest well, knowing that their customers’ data is secure.

Payment Security

How Can Healthcare Organizations Reduce PCI DSS Scope?

Healthcare organizations must be aware of vulnerabilities when accepting electronic payments and be proactive about protecting against them. Whether it is an individual employee who steals a patient’s payment card information or a large-scale cyber-attack, compromised data is costly. According to Ponemon Institute’s 2013 Global Cost of a Data Breach, Healthcare experiences the most costly data breaches at $233 per lost record; pharmaceuticals rank third at $207[1]. Couple that with damage to brand and reputation and it is easy to see how difficult it can be to recover from a breach.
