Three Ways to Ensure You’re PCI Compliant

Keeping your online business inline with industry rules and regulations isn’t easy. It’s a time consuming, yearly process but one that is vital to staying in compliance.  The annual Level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) Audit is the deepest dive that a group of outside security auditors will do on a payment system to be sure its secure.  This weeklong, on-site audit is required for licensing in both the U.S. and the EU and can take a team up to an entire year to get ready.  In Cathy’s latest XBIZ Column, she and Segpay’s IT Director share the top three ways to help narrow down what to focus on for the 2021 PCI Audit. 

“Having processes like end-to-end monitoring and analytics, along with metrics and logs across the full stack, are extremely helpful to get a bird’s-eye view of what’s going on in your company,” said Segpay CEO Cathy Beardsley. 

One of the most important things to work on is cyber security and protecting yourself.  You must be proactive, not reactive especially mitigating issues before they have an impact on a business.  Learn more about the steps you can take to protect the health and safety of your business in the full column here.
