PCI Compliance for Acquirers and ISOs

On top of merchants and service providers, there is an additional layer of PCI DSS compliance for acquirers and ISOs

As the industry continues to change, these organizations have become the new gatekeepers for PCI compliance. According to the payment card industry security standards council (PCI SSC), it’s up to these organizations to make sure their merchants are PCI DSS compliant.

This means, if you’re an acquiring bank or an ISO, you’re on the hook if one of your merchants is found to be PCI DSS noncompliant.

And the fines are steep.

On top of this, if one of your noncompliant merchants suffers a data breach, you’ll be on the hook even more.

Banks also need to be PCI DSS and possibly PCI PIN compliant in order to be compliant with other banking regulations, including the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC).

With so much on the line, who do you trust to deliver safe, effective PCI DSS compliance solutions?

Simple. Go with the company with a proven track record.

Go with 1st Secure IT.
