PCI Compliance and Trustwave

Any business that stores, processes or transmits cardholder data must be in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS is a widely accepted set of policies and procedures for optimizing the security of credit, debit, and cash card transactions and for protecting cardholders against misuse of their personal information. No matter the size of your store or restaurant operation, PCI compliance—achieved in part by leveraging solutions and services from a company like Trustwave—offers multiple benefits:

  • Reduced likelihood of data compromise, protecting your business’ reputation among consumers and earning their trust.
  • Ability to stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated hackers.
  • Better preparation to comply with other regulations—such as SOX and HIPPAA—as they evolve.

Meanwhile, opting against PCI DSS compliance puts all businesses at risk for:

  • Severe damage to reputation; even one data compromise incident can spell financial ruin.
  • Potentially steep fines levied by card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover).
  • Cancellation or suspension of merchant accounts.

How Trustwave Makes PCI Compliance Easy

Like any compliance regime, the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) can be complex and difficult to manage. Trustwave understands PCI compliance and how it can make restaurants more secure. The industry leader in PCI compliance for SMBs, the company offers technologies and services that cover every aspect of compliance, and has experts on staff to help its customers to navigate the process every step of the way.
