Accelerate PCI DSS Compliance
Secureframe streamlines the PCI DSS certification process at every step to help organizations that process, store, transmit, or impact credit card data to get compliant quickly and easily.
PCI DSS: The gold standard for secure online transactions
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) ensures that all companies that process, store, transmit or impact credit card data maintain proper data security throughout the entire transaction. Any merchant or service provider that wants to process, store, transmit, or can impact the security of the credit card data is required to be PCI compliant.Learn more
PCI DSS Compliance Types
The Report on Compliance (RoC) details twelve requirements explaining how an organization should maintain a strong security posture and secure its environment and systems to protect cardholder data. The RoC is the product of a third-party audit and control review performed by a qualified security assessor (QSA). Reports are valid for one year and must be renewed with annual audits.
The PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ A) is for e-commerce or mail-order/telephone-order (MOTO) merchants that outsource all payment processing and do not store, process, or transmit cardholder data on their premises or systems, and where all elements of the payment page(s) delivered to the consumer’s browser originate only and directly from a PCI DSS validated third-party service provider.
The PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ A-EP) is also for e-commerce or mail-order/telephone-order (MOTO) merchants that outsource all payment processing and do not store, process, or transmit cardholder data on their premises or systems. However, each element of the payment page(s) delivered to the consumer’s browser originates from either the merchant’s website or a PCI DSS-compliant service provider(s).
Most merchants that don’t fit into one of the categories above, and all service providers who are eligible to complete an SAQ, will need an SAQ D.
PCI DSS Compliance Involves:
- Securing the transmission of cardholder data through networks and systems
- Protecting the storage of cardholder data in databases and filesystems
- Establishing security logging to monitor against security incidents and unauthorized access and changes
- Preparing for security incident response, including disaster recovery and business continuity
- Maintaining proper policies and procedures, including scheduling a regular cadence for quarterly and annual processes
