Aasani PCI as a Service (PCIaaS)
Expert Assistance with PCI DSS Compliance
All businesses that process payment cards must protect cardholder information in compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) guidelines. Non-compliance can result in fines or revocation of a merchant’s ability to process payments. A serious data breach can cause severe financial consequences and damage customer trust. PCI compliance is therefore essential for any business that accepts credit or debit cards.There are four main requirements for PCI compliance: building and maintaining a secure network, protecting cardholder data, maintaining a vulnerability management program, and implementing strong access control measures. Any business that processes payment cards must ensure that it meets all four of these requirements in order to avoid the potentially severe consequences of non-compliance.

Any business that processes payments via credit or debit card is required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This set of security best practices was developed by the major card brands (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, JCB) to protect cardholders from fraud and data breaches. merchants who fail to comply with PCI DSS can face a variety of penalties, including fines, increased transaction fees, and revocation of their ability to process card payments. In the event of a data breach, businesses that are not in compliance with PCI DSS may be subject to even more severe penalties, including public shaming and multimillion-dollar fines. Given the potentially high cost of non-compliance, it’s essential for businesses to take steps to ensure their PCI DSS compliance. One way to do this is to work with a PCI-compliant payment processor that can help you navigate the complexities of PCI DSS and maintain compliance. By working with a knowledgeable partner, you can protect your business from hackers and data thieves, as well as limit your liability in the event of a data breach.
How Can Aasani Telecom Help with PCIaaS?
Scoping is the process of identifying which systems and applicati0ns in your organization are in-scope for PCI DSS. This includes all systems that process, store or transmit cardholder data. The first step in scoping is to inventory all systems and applications that handle cardholder data. Once you have a complete list, you can then begin to identify which ones are in-scope for PCI DSS. To do this, you will need to review each system and application to determine how it processes, stores or transmits cardholder data. Once you have determined which systems and applications are in-scope, you can then begin to identify the specific requirements that they must meet to be compliant. The PCI DSS Scoping Tool will help you to quickly and easily identify all requirements that your organization must satisfy to meet PCI compliance standards. By using this tool, you will be able to save time and ensure that your scoping process is accurate and comprehensive.
Once the scope of your PCI DSS compliance project has been determined, the next step is to complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). The SAQ is a self-paced, online questionnaire that helps to identify where your organization presently falls short of PCI DSS compliance and what steps need to be taken in order to reach full compliance. Depending on the size and nature of your business, you may be required to complete one of four different SAQs. Once you have completed the SAQ, you will have a better understanding of what is needed in order to achieve full PCI compliance.

If you are a merchant that accepts credit card payments, you must ensure that you are PCI compliant. PCI compliance is required by major credit card companies in order to protect customers’ information. In order to validate PCI compliance, you will need to obtain a report from your payment processor. This report will outline what steps you need to take in order to be compliant. You will also need to keep your own records of compliance reports and merchant PCI certificates. Lastly, you will need to provide an Attestation of Compliance in order to confirm that you are indeed PCI compliant. By following these steps, you can ensure that you are meeting the necessary requirements for PCI compliance.
