The company must install and maintain a firewall to protect cardholder data.
In a world where cyber attacks are a constant threat to business, organizations must follow cyber security regulations to keep sensitive data secure. From the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), there are a variety of standards that determine what security measures you need to take. If you’re a company that manages consumer credit card information, you are required to maintain compliance with payment card industry data security standards (PCI DSS).
The PCI DSS is a set of requirements created with the intention to ensure that any organization that handles credit card data processes, stores, and transmits that data securely. Launched in 2006, the purpose of the standard is to improve account security throughout the transaction process. If your organization accepts credit card or debit card transactions, you must comply with the PCI DSS.
