What is PCI Compliancy?
Card fraud and payment card breaches are an ongoing battle for the banks so PCI compliance is a top priority for merchants and businesses that process electronic payments. There are approximately 288 PCI DSS controls that companies need to comply with in order to protect not only data at rest, but also data in transit. The consequences of not being PCI compliant could cost up to £10,000 which is levied by banks and credit card institutions.
How can I become PCI Compliant?
There are two main ways that merchants are asked to demonstrate their compliance with PCI: Merchants may either indicate compliance by working through a self-reporting checklist on their own, or they may be required to undergo a full audit by a certified third-party security expert known as a Qualified Security Assessor.
Introducing Telecoms World Compliant Cloud, which creates a secure environment over the phone where your clients can disclose their bank details without their data ever becoming visible to an operator, or passed through company hardware. By simply transferring a caller to the Compliant Cloud, the caller is passed back to the operator through a secure connection. Now when the caller taps in their details, the data is being encrypted with only the notification of completion being made visible to the operator. Once the transaction is complete the funds are sent directly to your account without ever passing through your company’s hardware or being visible to staff.
