PCI DSS

PCI DSS Certification - Safeguarding against Credit Card fraud is paramount to any successful business and its reputation.


Peace of mind when you need it most

We ensure your annual PCI DSS compliance is completed for Level 4, Level 3 and Level 2 merchant's card machine, E-Commerce and virtual terminal merchant account's. Giving you one less thing to worry about and remove non-compliance fees.

PCI DSS is a mandatory annual assessment and set of requirements which was introduced by 5 members of the PCI SSC. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB. It is enforced by all merchant acquirers in order to protect businesses and customers against credit card fraud.

With 92% of breaches occurring in small businesses and fines ranging between £10,000 - £500,000. Being compliant acts as an insurance policy providing you with financial protection if credit card fraud was to occur in your business.



Process

1) You can either book an appointment with our specialist or contact our office. We establish the details required to complete the compliance on your behalf. We can also provide you with useful knowledge and training on the call.

2) We register your account with security vendors (Sysnet, Security Metrics, Trustwave, SaferPayments ) and acquirers (Barclaycard, WorldPay, Cardnet, AIB, Elavon, FirstData, Global Payments, Borgun, Credorax etc.). Complete your online assessment and set up network scans (if applicable)

3) Once we have completed your compliance, we will send you branded documents including your PCI DSS certificate. This means your business is compliant and your monthly non-compliance charges will be removed.

In most cases, we can achieve same day PCI compliance for clients.
