Simplifying PCI Compliance

What is PCI Compliance and Why Do You Need to Be Compliant?

With the industry leaning heavily towards digitization, small and medium businesses face new challenges in today’s IT world. Having an online presence is essential to keep your business growing. 

If you are a merchant that processes payments on a regular basis, it is even more important for you to have a website, especially in these “socially distant” times. 

It is also important to make sure you are taking every step to secure your customer’s payment data, in other words, you have to be Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant. Becoming PCI compliant can be a daunting task, especially for small and medium businesses with limited IT budgets. 

This is where we come in. We help companies like yours leverage public clouds like AWS, Azure, and OCI to become compliant in a matter of months, without breaking your bank.

Pro tip: as you try to meet pci compliance, you’re better prepared to comply with additional regulations, such as hipaa, sox, and others.

So why should you be PCI compliant?

Possible results of PCI Non-Compliance include:

  1. Compromised data that negatively impacts customers, vendors, and financial institutions.
  2. Severe damage to your reputation and your ability to conduct business effectively, not just today, but into the future.
  3. Account data breaches that can lead to significant loss of sales, relationships, and community standing; plus, public companies often see falling share price as result of account data breaches.
  4. Lawsuits, insurance claims, canceled accounts, payment card issuer fines, and government fines.
