Achieving PCI DSS compliance doesn’t have to be hard! PCI DSS compliance, delivered for a low monthly fee.

Now we’ve all survived MTD & GDPR let’s get back to PCI DSS!

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes.

Achieving PCI DSS compliance does not have to be hard, While it may be tempting to put off the completion of the 40 page long PCI self-assessment questionnaire, failure to become PCI compliant could result in significant fines from payment companies (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, American Express). Plus with cyber crime and identity theft on the rise hoteliers have a responsibility to hotel guests and employees to keep their data secure.

Precept IT is the Northern Ireland based authorised partner and re-seller for Mako Networks.

Mako has developed a unique system that simplifies PCI DSS compliance, delivered for a low monthly fee.

Mako Networks is a world leader in assisting businesses to achieve PCI DSS compliance, having been the first network management company in the world to be PCI DSS-certified. The Mako System applies a pre-configured compliance template to payment networks, ensuring that outside threats are kept at bay with world-class security technologies, and internal network settings are applied and maintained to provide constant, assured compliance.

If your business processes, stores or transmits credit card data, it must meet a special set of security criteria known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS ensure that a baseline of security is in place and help reduce the risk of credit card fraud, but for many businesses, implementing the PCI DSS can be a difficult and expensive undertaking.

Mako Networks was the first network management company in the world to be PCI DSS-certified in 2009, and remains the only solution that connects customers directly to the Internet with a Level 1 PCI DSS certification.
