Payment card transactions are a critical part of the fulfillment process of most businesses today. The volume of these transactions continues to rise each year. Breaches of payment card data security occur daily. Some of these breaches are discovered immediately and solved quickly. Others penetrate systems under the radar and are discovered only when a large amount of damage has been done.
To ensure that payment card data breaches are minimized, PCI compliance is mandatory for business entities involved in handling payment card information. PCI compliant entities must meet the requirements set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The goals of these PCI compliance requirements are to secure and mitigate risks to payment card data.
PCI DSS is established by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), which is an industry group consisting of major credit card companies (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, and JCB International). The PCI DSS establishes minimum requirements for business entities to handle payment card information securely. Achieving and maintaining PCI compliance entails abiding by the PCI DSS framework.
The PCI DSS framework stipulates the implementation of the following tasks in order to be PCI DSS compliant:
1. Assessment. Business entities must identify all technology and process touch points that pose potential vulnerabilities and risks to payment card data in all its states – in transmission, while being processed, and in storage.
2. Remediation. When vulnerabilities and risks are identified, business entities must go through the remediation process to fix them. This process can involve fixing software and hardware vulnerabilities and changing operational practices. Reviews are performed to ensure that fixes work.
3. Reporting. Reports on PCI compliance must be submitted to the relevant oversight entities that a business works with (payment card issuers and banks). Business must use PCI SSC approved Qualified Security Assessors and Approved Scanning Vendors to perform the auditing for the PCI compliance reports.
