PCI DSS Compliance & Consultancy
Precept are experienced in assisting our customers with the technical planning and remediation phases that follow a PCI/DSS readiness assessment by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).
Our unique Level One PCI DSS certification and solution can assist merchants of any size to secure credit card data. 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.
That’s why Mako has developed a unique system that simplifies PCI DSS compliance, delivered for a low monthly fee. For an additional service fee, the Mako System can integrate with a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Bundle from an independent company certified by the PCI Security Standards Council.
The QSA Bundle walks merchants through their annual self-assessment process, and compiles their responses into a pre-populated document that helps complete their annual compliance process.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council was setup by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International with the aim of enhancing security for payment accounts. This goal will be realised through widespread adoption of the PCI Data Security Standard (usually referred to as just PCI) by all businesses and organisations that store, process and/or transmit credit/debit card data. PCI/DSS standards centre on the adoption of the ‘digital dozen’ – Digital Dozen drop down.

With the imminent threat of fines for ‘non-compliance’ and the on-going threat of ‘compromise’ penalties it is vital that all affected organisations ensure they are comprehensively covered.
