Frequently Asked Questions
PCI DSS is short for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which governs how organizations should safely store, secure, and process sensitive cardholder payment data. PCI DSS exists to prevent data breaches, fraud, and cybercrime in general as it relates to payment data.
Anyone that handles payment data, from physical banks and retail locations to online payment processors and e-commerce sites, should be able to prove PCI compliance to both their customer base and outside regulatory agencies.
There are four levels of PCI DSS compliance, and the level you’ll need to reach will depend on your industry, business, and customer base. In general, the higher the volume of transactions you process on a regular basis, the higher the level of PCI compliance you’ll need to reach.
Once you’ve downloaded and worked through the PCI DSS requirements checklist, you’ll be able to begin working with an experienced partner like RSI Security to map out the specific costs. Depending on the size of your business, the volume of transactions, and current security posture, the cost can range from as little as $1,000 to upwards of $50,000.
Unless you cover all the bases in the PCI DSS checklist, you may be held financially responsible by regulatory agencies or payment card industry governing bodies. If a data breach or cyber attack does occur, for example, auditors or investigators will look closely at your cybersecurity practices - a major part of which is PCI compliance. You may be held responsible for fines, in addition to costs associated with replacing compromised cards and damage to your overall brand.
