PII & Credit Card Data Scanning

Ensure customer privacy and data security with the latest scanning technology

If your goal is to ensure customer privacy and data security it is vital you leverage the advantages associated with the latest credit card & PII data scanning technology.

As you may be aware, a security breach can have damaging consequences for your brand and reputation. Equally, let’s not forget that the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards are tough standards to meet. Merchants processing more than six million credit card transactions a year (level 1 merchants), need to get a PCI Council-approved Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) to audit their data security processes. While smaller merchants need to conduct security self-assessments annually and report their positions.

Even worse, getting hacked could ruin your business. Losing only a few thousand records can bankrupt companies. There are organisations that achieve compliance in a matter of months as they understand why compliance is important and they leverage advanced technologies to identify and secure previously unsecured sensitive data effectively.

With the latest scanning technology such as the one offered by IP Solutions, you are in good hands. As the scope of data continually expands, organisations face increased complexity to identify and control all sensitive data handling points across an enterprise network.
