The IT policy is an essential piece of PCI DSS certification
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a security standard that all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data must comply with or risk heavy fines. By meeting the PCI DSS requirements, you know that your company meets the highest security requirements within the industry.
An important part of the PCI DSS certification is to establish and follow an approved IT policy. The documentation itself is even its own requirement – 12 – in the standard.
Writing an IT policy requires indepth knowledge of PCI DSS and hundreds of hours of work. With a PCI DSS-certified infrastructure 24 Solutions is ample qualified, especially since we also have our own certified auditors, known as PCI QSA:s (Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor). This is a combination that we are alone with in Europe. The QSA’s are authorized by the PCI Security Standards Council to assess the compliance of companies and organisations with PCI DSS.
