Most businesses accept credit cards for payments of their goods and services. It's a necessary part of doing business, especially in the digital age. However, some business owners may not realize that when processing credit cards, they need to be in PCI DSS compliance. Contact our team of experts today to learn how our PCI compliance management services can help your company.
PCI is an acronym for payment card industry. Compliance is standards set by the industry to help businesses understand what they need to do to become compliant. The full standard is referred to as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCS DSS).
It doesn’t matter the size of your business or the number of transactions you process with credit cards. If you accept credit cards, then you should consider PCI compliance. Luckily, RCS Professional Services can help you with your PCI DSS compliance. By calling us or contacting us on our website, you’ll be well on your way to managing your compliance.
Companies are not required to be PCI compliant. However, those that choose not to may increase their liabilities. A breach with credit card data will lead authorities to investigate. When they discover that the company was not compliant, it becomes fodder for lawyers.
At RCS, we will work with you to learn about your credit card operations. We evaluate whether you are compliant and perform a gap analysis. We know what needs to be done, and we'll work with you to make sure you do what is needed through our PCI compliance management.
The monetary costs of a data breach can be steep. But the loss of confidence from customers is something that may take years to recover from, if ever. You would likely think twice when using a company that has experienced data breaches yourself. Your customers are likely to do the same with your business.
It’s easy for companies to be confused about the rules, as there are several of them. Some companies may believe they are compliant but forget a few crucial requirements. That’s why it pays to have an experienced company like RCS work with you to ensure all the requirements are met.
We keep on top of the industry, too. That means when new rules are added, or previous rules change, we'll know about it. We can update you with the latest changes to make sure you stay compliant. Too many companies adopt a set-it-and-forget-it attitude. You can see how that can be dangerous.
You probably don't have time to keep up to date with all the rule changes yourself. You are busy managing your business and trying to keep up with the rules will take you away from performing your business functions. That's why it makes sense to work with us at RCS and engage in PCI compliance management services. We'll be your eyes and ears when it comes to managing your overall PCI DSS compliance plan. That is our business, and we are good at what we do.
We’ll also help you make sure your employees understand what is expected of them regarding PCI compliance. We'll set up procedures for them to follow, and we'll answer any questions as they arise.
Some companies may try to manage their PCI DSS compliance on their own. They may even be lucky enough that nothing adverse happens. Unfortunately, they usually discover when it is too late that they missed crucial requirements, and there is no going back at that point. This is not a gamble that is worth the risk.
There are levels of compliance based on the size of your business. Therefore, you may not need to implement every requirement based on the level of your business. This is also something our PCI compliance management can help you determine.
Don’t leave the compliance of your business to chance. At RCS Professional Services, we are ready to get you fully compliant, and we'll help you stay that way! Give us a call today.
