Why is PCI Compliance Important?

The breach of cardholder data affects everyone. Merchants and Service Providers can suffer reputational damage (and in turn, business), as well as numerous financial liabilities:

  • Lost confidence – customers go elsewhere
  • Cost of reissuing new payment cards
  • Fraud losses
  • Legal costs, settlements and judgments
  • Fines and penalties from the Payment Brands
  • Termination of ability to accept payment cards
  • Lost jobs (CISO, CIO, CEO and others)

Payment card data is a target of malicious actors.  Payment card data made up 60% of data breaches in 2016


How can Merchants and other entities that store, process, or transmit CHD implement the right controls to ensure compliance with the PCI DSS in protecting consumer data? Once the storefront is up and running, and the terminal devices are installed and ready to accept payment cards, who takes care of the maintenance and ongoing security needs?
