Protect cardholder data and ensure compliance
Any organization that stores, processes or transmits cardholder data is required to be PCI compliant. The best way to protect cardholder data is to continuously monitor and enforce the 12 critical controls specified in the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS).
The biggest mistake most companies make is to treat PCI compliance as a one-time annual event. PCI-DSS compliance doesn’t have to be complex and difficult to manage, rather it should be a bi-product of a well executed cyber security plan.

A security breach can have devastating costs for your business. In 2016, the average cost of recovery from a single security incident was estimated to be $4.9 million for small businesses and $13.1 million for enterprises, with an average consolidated cost of $4 million per data breach. 80% of small businesses go out of business within 18 months of a data breach.*
