We have partnered with Trustwave to establish procedures to protect your business and your customers from theft, fraud, and other security risks from the compromise of card data. Trustwave will help you comply with PCI.
Many merchants are confused by PCI-DSS requirements and aren’t sure how to get started. The Trustwave TrustKeeper program will help you understand PCI-DSS requirements and complete the steps to assess your compliance.
The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA)
In 2003, FACTA added new sections to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, intended primarily to help consumers fight the growing crime of identity theft. Accuracy, privacy, limits on information sharing and new consumer rights to disclosure are included in FACTA.
PCI Security Standards Council
PCI was established by the card associations to address the risks associated with theft or loss of credit card data that could then be used for fraudulent activity. All merchants are required to comply with the PCI standards or become subject to fines from the card associations.
The Card Associations
PCI-DSS is endorsed by all major card associations in the United States including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
