According to the PCI Security Standards Council, more than 80% of data breaches involve small merchants. In the B2B International IT Security Risks Survey, Kaspersky Lab reported that 90% of the 5,500 companies surveyed had experienced at least one security incident and nearly half, 46 percent, lost sensitive data due to an internal or external security threat.
It’s our priority to stay on top of the latest security standards, use multiple security controls, and work hard to ensure that our processing platform is 100% compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
With DataGuardian, you get extra security tools that will help you regularly monitor and protect your business and your customers' sensitive personal information. Plus, you get valuable resources that will help you respond to a data breach and protect your profits if your business is ever compromised. Combine all of this with our extensive regulatory reporting program and you’ve got a winning combination.
Our questionnaires are easy-to-use and guide you step-by-step through the version that’s right for your business. You have 24/7 access through our compliance portal, Compass, our online reporting system. The questionnaires are even available in multiple languages: currently English, Spanish, and Chinese are supported, and more will be added soon.
Four times a year we will test your network to identify any vulnerabilities and gaps in your systems that could possibly expose you to a data breach.
Rest easy knowing that you’re covered in the event of a breach. Our $100,000 data breach policy covers the cost of forensic audits, fees, and fines from the card associations, hardware and software upgrades (up to $15,000), and consumer notifications (up to $10,000). The best part is that you get all of this with no deductible, and it doesn’t matter if a merchant is PCI compliant at the time of the breach – they are still protected. If you suspect you’ve become a victim of a breach, our team of forensic security experts will walk you through what you need to do.
Our Regulatory Reporting Program has been rolled into DataGuardian, so one program offers you even greater value and covers all of your compliance and security needs, while helping you prevent backup withholding, fines, and extra fees.
Our dedicated team is available from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to quickly answer any questions you may have about the questionnaires or the PCI compliance process itself.
