Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
Merchants and service providers seeking to become compliant with the newly enhanced version 3.0 PCI DSS standards can now turn to the experts at pcipolicyportal.com and follow a proven credit card PCI compliance checklist. Developed by payments industry experts, the credit card PCI compliance checklist helps ensure rapid and complete certification with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
The PCI compliance certification checklist, available for immediate download today from pcipolicyportal.com, includes the following essential categories:
1. Determine if you are a merchant or service provider.
2. Determine which of the PCI DSS levels you fall into.
Thus, Level 1 compliance is the most stringent, one that requires an annual onsite assessment, while the higher levels (i.e., 2, 3, and 4) often just require an annual Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ).
3. Determine which PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) to use, which can be anywhere from SAQ A to SAQ D.
4. Review and Understand the Applicable SAQ.
5. Purchase PCI DSS Policies and other Essential Material.
Regardless of what level and type of PCI compliance is being mandated, from a simple Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) to an actual Level 1 onsite assessment, policies and procedures – and other supporting documentation – are absolutely critical for compliance.
