HIPAA and PCI measures extend much further than just compliance, this ultimately protects sensitive customer data and adds to a business’ reputation of putting their customer’s security concerns first.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Arcphor Strategy, a Norfolk, Virginia based business strategy firm has partnered with the cyber security company Sera-Brynn from Chesapeake, VA to offer support for small and medium-sized businesses in meeting Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council compliance goals and requirements. Sentinel Express is a capability available through Arcphor Strategy which provides Sera-Brynn's Qualified Security Assessors to help merchants meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard through completion of the annual Self Assessment Questionnaire and penetration testing required for credit card processing systems to achieve PCI levels 3 or 4 accreditation. Small and medium-sized businesses often do not obtain the level of cyber security attention and support they need and are targeted by cyber criminals much more often than large companies for that very reason. Arcphor Strategy and Sera-Brynn are working to help small and medium businesses economically meet mandatory PCI requirements and to become eligible for federal grants and funding. “This extends beyond being PCI compliant, this ultimately protects sensitive customer data and adds to a business’ reputation of putting their customer’s security concerns first”, Tim Ryan, President of Arcphor Strategy.
