PCI Compliance Audits

According to the 2006 Identity Theft Survey Report from the Federal Trade Commission, it is suggested that approximately 8.3 million U.S. adults discovered that they were victims of some form of ID theft in 2005.

A large mechanism for wide scale identity fraud is the theft of credit card data from companies. Many of these security breaches cost affected companies time, money and reputation. Customers lose trust and quickly look elsewhere to do business. The best defense against losing credit card data is to ensure that credit card transactions are handled safely and securely. PCI DSS compliance can help secure your organization’s sensitive data.

The PCI DSS is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security. It was developed by the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council, which includes American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. International.

Is Your Customers’ Data Secure? Will It Stay Secure?

Kettle River has extensive experience working with clients to become Payment Card International (PCI) compliant. PCI compliance strives to ensure that cardholder data is accessed and stored in a manner that does not allow unauthorized access. Key elements of PCI compliance include:

  • Securing networks from intruders
  • Protecting card data both in the database and in transit between systems
  • Anti-virus and anti-malware protection for both database systems and applications
  • Minimizing exposure of cardholder data to only those systems and persons that need to know that data.
