Taking the pain out of the PCI Process

Businesses are dependent on their customers trust, thats a given. Each year we share more and more of ourselves online - a trend that shows no sign of slowing. Each time we go online we place our faith in the security measures taken by those who manage that information on our behalf.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PCI DSS) was introduced in efforts to help protect businesses and their customers payment card information. In essence PCI is a collection of best practice that any organisation should already have in place. Of course not every business has the inhouse expertise to embed additional levels of security into their business practice.
