Card Payment Direct Educates Merchants on Payment Card Industry Compliance

At Card Payment Direct we find it is important to educate our merchants on PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and procedures to guard sensitive credit card and personal information.

As a merchant, you are required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a set of comprehensive requirements developed by the major card brands to facilitate the adoption of consistent data security measures.

The core of the PCI DSS is a group of principles and accompanying requirements, around which the specific elements of the Data Security Standards are organized:

  • Build and Maintain a Secure Network
  • Protect Cardholder Data
  • Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
  • Implement Strong Access Control Measures
  • Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
  • Maintain an Information Security Policy

Following the Compliance Standards means that processing systems are secure and customers can trust your business with their sensitive information.
