The PCI Data Security Standard has been mandated by all major credit card companies, and is intended to protect consumer cardholder data. To achieve PCI DSS compliance, all members, merchants, and service providers must adhere to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, which offers a single approach to safeguarding sensitive data for all card brands. Failure to comply with the PCI Data Security Standard may cause your processing privileges to be revoked. In addition, you may be fined up to $500,000 per incident.

C & G’s Check Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance option will protect your company and ensure that your processes and software meet the existing PCI DSS compliance standards.

Unfortunately, companies now face increased scrutiny regarding PCI DSS compliance. Fines and penalties have increased dramatically for non‐compliance. According to VISA, 42% of large and medium‐sized US merchants have at times not reached their respective PCI DSS compliance deadlines. For many companies, this is the result of relying on manual assessment methods for PCI DSS audits requiring significant IT resources. In addition, manually checking  systems against PCI DSS requirements is time consuming can result in multiple errors. However, C & G can assist you with this process and ensure that you company meets all PCI DSS standards on time and without error.
