PCI Compliance

PCI DSS Control Objectives

PCI Compliance

If you store or process credit card data, PCI is important to you. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is not a law but instead, it is a thorough set of rules put forth by the five major issuers of credit cards.

The PCI Data Security Standard specifies twelve requirements for compliance, organized into six logically related groups called “control objectives.”

These six PCI DSS groups are:

1. Build and Maintain a Secure Network and Systems
2. Protect Cardholder Data
3. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
4. Implement Strong Access Control Measures
5. Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
6. Maintain an Information Security Policy

As Our Customer

For complete compliance, the GDV customer primary environment must be PCI compliant. If an audit or certification program has not been undertaken, we recommend completing the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard Self-Assessment Questionnaire A and Attestation of Compliance

GDV customers who are subject to the PCI DSS should notify GDV of this requirement and their intention and plan to comply.

Global Data Vault and PCI

GDV layers our compliance with PCI through combining your compliance with our adherence to a thorough list of internal controls and policies.
