An ideal introduction to PCI DSS v3.2.1

All businesses that accept payment cards are prey for criminal hackers trying to steal financial information and commit identity fraud. The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) exists to ensure that businesses process credit and debit card payments in a way that effectively protects cardholder data.

All organizations that accept, store, transmit, or process cardholder data must comply with the Standard; failure to do so can have serious consequences and expensive repercussions. These range from customer desertion and brand damage to significant financial penalties and operating restrictions imposed by banks.

Covering PCI DSS v3.2.1, this handy pocket guide provides all the information you need to consider as you approach the Standard. It is also an ideal training resource for those in your organisation involved with payment card processing. Topics include:

  • An overview of PCI DSS v3.2.1
  • How to comply with the requirements of the Standard
  • Maintaining compliance
  • The PCI SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire)
  • The PCI DSS and ISO 27001
  • Procedures and qualifications
  • An overview of the PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard)
  • PTS (PIN Transaction Security)
  • Software-based PIN entry
