Achieving PCI DSS Compliance

Achieving PCI DSS compliance is an important part of trading in the digital economy. Whilst achieving PCI DSS compliance may seem daunting at first, it’s important to ensure that any payments taken via debit or credit cards are secure.

PCI DSS compliance is achieved through an assessment performed by a certified PCI DSS Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).  A QSA is an independent security organisation that has been qualified by the PCI Security Standards Council to validate an organisation’s adherence to the PCI DSS requirements.
