For each and every requirement, WHOA.com has solutions that we will tailor to our customer’s needs to meet and achieve their own compliance.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is a set of 6 Security areas comprised of 12 requirements designed to make sure that merchants that accept, process, store or transmit credit card date maintain a highly secure computing environment. These standards were developed jointly by Visa, MasterCard, JCB International, Discover and American Express to prevent consumer credit card data theft and reduce online fraud.
Compliance and validation of compliance with the 12 requirements is mandatory for any organization that stores, transmits or processes credit card transactions. If a merchant has a breach and they are found to be out of compliance, the fines can be extremely heavy and in many cases the business cannot recover.
