Syscomm Cyber Security
With Cyber security, hacking and data theft hot topics in the press at the moment, many traditional and e-commerce retailers are thought to be operating IT security policy below the standards required for mandated compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), leaving themselves open to hefty fines, prosecution and the risk of being unable to process payment card transactions.
Developed in consultation between the major payment card brands (American Express, MasterCard and Visa), the PCI DSS standard is required for all organisations that accept, transmit, store or process credit or debit card payments – regardless of their size, number or value of the transactions.
As Cyber security threats continue to evolve, so too does the PCI DSS security standard, with new iterations continuing to tighten the security surrounding the cardholder data environment. The current 3.2 standards reflect the changing times, with enhanced SSL security now a requirement on the back of vulnerabilities exposed in earlier SSL deployments, and 2-factor authentication (2FA) now a requirement for both local and remote administrative access to systems within the cardholder data environment.
Syscomm consult on the process of attaining or maintaining the PCI DSS standard. We help to drive down the scope of the PCI standard within your Data, Voice or Contact Centre network and with gap-analysis and vulnerability checking to close security exposures within your network, in readiness for self-certification, or assessed certification from your PCI DSS Quality Security Assessor (QSA)
