PCI-DSS and PA DSS Assessments

The importance of PCI-DSS Certification

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS v3.0) is a widely accepted set of policies and procedures that provide an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process, including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents. PCI-DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing - including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD).

The importance of PA-DSS Certification

The Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA DSS Compliance) is the global security standard created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) which is a set of security requirements for software vendors that develop payment applications.
