Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Compliance

Visa, MasterCard and other major credit card companies expect that all companies, which process payment transactions, are compliant with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).

The information security audit is conducted at vendors who receive more than 20.000 online payments annually, and at other companies gathering payment and transaction related information from other companies. Adherence to the PCI DSS standard will be supervised via independent audits conducted by qualified vendors.

NXme implements this service in co-operation with Nixu Ltd. (Finland).

PCI Levels and Validation Actions

PCI DSS validation controls are related to the number of credit card transactions processed, handled or stored annually. Thus, the customer is offered only the modules that are needed to meet customer's PCI DSS standard compliance, and the customer can select services needed.
