PCI DSS

The security of payment card data is governed by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS.  This affects the people, processes and technologies which are involved with the capture, storage, processing and transmission of payment card data.

Leveraging experience within the card payments market space, One Compliance Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) take an approach to PCI DSS which reduces both the risk to cardholder data and the ongoing cost of maintaining PCI DSS compliance.  This is based on the simple fact that risk to cardholder data is minimised by outsourcing key areas of cardholder data capture, storage, processing and transmission, and then by isolating any remaining system components which can affect the security of cardholder data.

One Compliance do not over-complicate the process to meet the standard.  The most successful and cost-effective method of achieving PCI DSS is to:

  1. Review the options that are available to you to remove from scope the people, processes and technologies that do not need to be there
  2. Ensure any remaining controls are addressed appropriately and can be assessed
  3. Conduct the assessment
  4. Ensure procedures are in-place in order to maintain PCI DSS compliance on an ongoing basis
