If you store or process credit card data, then PCI Compliance and network security are of primary concern to your business. To ensure consistent standards for merchants, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council established Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards. These standards incorporate best practices to protect cardholder data, and they often require validation from a third-party Qualified Service Assessor (QSA).
We help our customers meet their PCI compliance needs by providing an Attestation on Compliance from an independent QSA. The Attestation on Compliance can be used in conjunction with our SOC 2 report and ISO 27001 certification to demonstrate that the infrastructure meets the PCI controls. Customers and their auditors can use our reports to verify the PCI controls that are DWTI’s responsibility are met.
For more information about and assistance to achieve, certify, and maintain PCI compliance for your DWTI environment, please contact our sales team.
