Peach Payments - Intro to PCI-DSS, its importance and how you can become compliant:
"We simplify accepting online payments from customers in the emerging markets" - http://peachpayments.com/
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a proprietary information security standard for organisations that handle cardholder information for the major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM, and POS cards. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.
In the session we will try to cover the following topics:
• What does PCI Compliance mean? What are the standards?
• Why is it important?
• What is happening in South Africa on PCI Compliance?
• What does this mean for merchants?
• How do you become compliant? What is the role of your payment service provider in this?
