Is your organization seeking to become Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) compliant for 2009? Are you a merchant or service provider that is directly involved in the processing, storage, or transmission of transaction data or cardholder data? If you answered yes to these questions, then its time you learn more about PCI DSS compliance and what the road ahead holds for your organization.
First and foremost, PCI DSS compliance is spreading like wildfire, to say the least. From small start up, locally owned companies to large e-commerce entities, PCI DSS compliance is becoming mandatory for every conceivable organization that conducts commerce with payment cards.
To be fair, regulation for PCI DSS compliance was somewhat lax and disjointed in the beginning, but much has changed in the last six months as the major payment brands are starting to push PCI DSS compliance much deeper and in a more transparent way then ever before.
If you want to learn more about Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance, then visit pciassessment.org, one of the most in-depth sites currently available for PCI DSS news and information.
2009 is just around the corner, so properly plan for having your organization become PCI DSS compliant.
