What is required for PCI Compliance?
You must be PCI compliant if you are a business that accepts credit cards as payment. Why is this important? It means your systems are secure, and that your customers can be confident doing business with you. When customers are confident, they’re also more likely to come back and do business again! In most cases, the merchant providing the card service for your business will carry out a PCI compliance audit which consists of an external scan of the network and a questionnaire for the business owner or IT provider.
The scan is to find any issues in the firewall and create a report of these problems with proposed fixes. This report can be very rocky to navigate for someone who is not trained with the terminology. Here at CMIT Solutions of Southwest St. Louis, we have trained technicians that understand and address any issues so you can pass your scan with ease.
Our PCI Compliance Program starts with managed firewalls that can be at the edge of the network or be placed behind another firewall to segment all credit card systems from the rest of the network. In addition, we provide a compliance portal to assist with the completion of the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and Policies and Procedures Templates specific to PCI compliance. We top that off with online training for users who are involved with the acceptance of credit card information.
