St. Louis, Missouri - April 16, 2016 - Alpine Security, a leading cyber security firm, is proud to announce the addition of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Compliance to their service offerings. Alpine Security's PCI DSS Compliance services are structured to help small to medium size businesses unravel the mystery of PCI Compliance. Alpine Security's services provide a Trusted Advisor to help organizations through the PCI Compliance process. Christopher White, Operations Manager for Alpine Security, stated "There’s a lot of confusion with regard to PCI DSS compliance. To make matters worse, a lot of the big security companies who perform PCI DSS compliance don’t put forth the effort to engage with clients properly."
Alpine Security engages with clients directly, making sure they have a full understanding of the requirements of PCI DSS. Alpine Security has established templates for their clients that provide compliance with the appropriate PCI DSS requirements. They work with client personnel to ensure understanding of what each template is used for and how it applies to PCI DSS. "We go to great lengths to ensure clients have satisfied the requirements. We don’t just tell you whether you’re compliant or not and leave you to wonder how you will address the problems - we work with you to establish processes or implement technologies that will help you achieve compliance," White said.
The end goal of Alpine Security's PCI DSS Compliance Service is to make sure their clients are secure; that the risk is minimized of having credit card information compromised.
About PCI DSS
PCI security standards are technical and operational requirements set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to protect cardholder data. The standards globally govern all merchants and organizations that store, process or transmit this data – with new requirements for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions. Compliance with the PCI set of standards is mandatory for their respective stakeholders, and is enforced by the major payment card brands who established the Council: American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.
The PCI DSS applies to any entity that stores, processes, and/or transmits cardholder data. It covers technical and operational system components included in or connected to
cardholder data. If your business accepts or processes payment cards, it must comply with the PCI DSS.
