PCI DSS Compliance

Interested in our services? Choose one of the below options

The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an information security standard designed to reduce payment card fraud by increasing security controls around cardholder data.

At Fibre IT Solutions, we give you the best advice and guidance you need to become PCI compliant – and stay that way.

Establish Cardholder Data Environment (CDE) Scope

Correctly scoping your environment is the crucial first step to becoming PCI compliant. The Cardholder Data Environment (CDE) scope defines the extent to which all PCI DSS controls must be performed. Mistakes in scoping can lead to severe consequences and wasted resources. Our PCI experts in Fibre IT Solutions will define your CDE's precise scope to ensure you meet every security and compliance requirement.

The question is, how does your business establish if an asset is in scope? Any people, process, or technology that stores, processes, or transmits cardholder data is considered within your CDE and in scope for your PCI DSS audit.

The PCI DSS applies to ANY organization, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data. If you are not PCI DSS compliant, get in touch today to speak with one of our advisors for free.

How to Define PCI DSS Scope?

The rules defined by the PCI Security Standards Council state that the following are within the scope:

1. Any devices that provide security and authentication solutions like a firewall, router, or server
2. IT assets or systems with connectivity into the CDE, whether physical, wireless or virtualized
3. Any asset that traffics cardholder data or is part of the cardholder data flow

What are the requirements of PCI DSS?

There are six categories to consider when making your business PCI Compliant, which are staggered over twelve individual steps.

The twelve steps to achieving PCI Compliance are:

Ensure All Security Requirements Are Met

To maintain proper payment security, you need a firewall configuration that protects cardholder data and a method for storing it securely. Network segmentation enables organizations to significantly reduce PCI scope by isolating assets from the cardholder data environment. As a result, network segmentation can reduce your organization’s PCI scope, reducing costs, time and effort to achieve compliance. Our highly skilled engineers can ensure your network is segmented correctly, data is encrypted, and you’re leveraging resilient storage solutions to protect every area where cardholder data flows.
