RetailCompli is a cloud-based management service, which minimises the chance of a data breach and ensures your business is legally compliant. There are various ways this solution reduces the threat of a data breach, with one of the most important features being the creation of a secure Cardholder Data Environment (CDE).

RetailCompli is simple to set up. No costly technical know-how is required. Instead, it is simply plugged in on site.

This is when all cardholder information is segregated from all other access on the network, and thus access is restricted.

TThis relates to all sensitive authentication data, such as the full primary account number, expiration data, CVV2, pin, and service code.

PCI DSS is the acronym for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. This is a list of requirements that are in place for any business that stores, transmits, and processes card information. The standard was introduced to decrease credit card fraud and the first version was implemented in 2004. You can take a look at our informative guide for further information –

There are 12 steps to achieving PCI compliance. These are outlined below –

  1. Install and maintain a firewall configuration
  2. Do not utilise vendor-supplied defaults
  3. Safeguard stored cardholder information
  4. Encrypt the transmission of cardholder information across open and public networks
  5. Use and update antivirus software
  6. Develop and maintain secure applications and systems
  7. Utilise business need-to-know to restrict cardholder data access
  8. Assign a unique ID to every individual with computer access
  9. Restrict physical access to cardholder data
  10. Track and monitor cardholder data access
  11. Test security processes and systems on a frequent basis
  12. Maintain an information security policy

Do you ever take debit or credit card payments? Whether you take one or 100,000 payments, you need to be concerned with PCI.

No, all steps of PCI DSS are mandatory for all businesses that handle cardholder information, irrespective of the volume of data or the industry they operate in.

You will face huge bank fines, which can amount to as much as £65,000, if not more, as well as compensation costs, remediation expenses, and other costs. Not to mention, you will destroy trust with your customers, which can be very difficult to re-build.

This is incorrect. It is your duty to make sure your customers’ data is protected, even if you do outsource card processing. You must ensure you are compliant whenever handling sensitive data and you have to make certain that the third-party processer you outsource this part of your business to is PCI compliant.

This is a questionnaire you need to fill in to ensure your business is compliant. You cannot simply fill in the answers you think the PCI DSS want to hear. If a breach occurs, and you have been found to do this, the consequences will be even worse. Retail Secure can ensure that your SAQ is taken care of.
