Are You Ready for PCI Compliance Standards?

Are You Ready for PCI Compliance Standards?
October 6, 2010

In response to the growing number of data security breaches, the major payment card brands of VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and JCB have come together to form the Payment Card Industry

Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an independent body that will manage the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination and implementation of security standards for account data protection.

Since its establishment the PCI has developed a set of global security requirements for all businesses that handle payment cards, including individual merchants, as well as software developers and manufacturers of applications used for payment card transactions.

Two of the major standards developed are the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for card merchants and processors, and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), for software developers and integrators.

With implementation of these standards approaching, the team at Links Modular Solutions are working to ensure that leisure businesses in Australia and New Zealand can maintain the required standards.
