PCI DSS Advisory Services

PCI DSS Advisory Services

If your organization accepts credit card payment, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and its Data Security Standard (DSS). This rigorous set of security controls was designed to ensure that companies accepting, processing, storing, or transmitting credit card information do so in a secure manner to prevent fraud and data breaches.

While these requirements took effect in 2003, compliance has been a struggle for organizations worldwide: according to the 2019 Verizon Payment Security Report, only 36.7% of organizations were fully compliant. Failure to comply with PCI DSS can result in steep fines (up to $250,000 per month) and can open your business to financial attacks and data breaches — where the loss of reputation and consumer trust can lead to further financial losses. According to the 2019 IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report, the average total cost of a data breach is $3.92 million.
