What is PCI DSS Compliance? 

PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security
Standards which are the official security standards created by the Council to reduce payment card fraud.  

In 2006 American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International formed the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The main purpose of the council is to produce and maintain the Data Security Standard (DSS).

This is a set of rules and requirements that Webmama Limited has met and satisfied all standards outlined by the PCI Security Standards council to help prevent fraud, hacking, network architecture, software deployment, and other threats to private cardholder data which are protected and free of any vulnerability that may harm your online business. The main objectives of the PCI DSS are as follows: 

          Build and Maintain a Secure Network 
  1. Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data 
  2. Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters
    Protect Cardholder Data 

  4. Protect stored cardholder data 
  5. Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks 
  6. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program 

  7. Use and regularly update anti-virus software 
  8. Develop and maintain secure systems and applications 
  9. Implement Strong Access Control Measures 

  10. Restrict access to cardholder data b y business need-to-know 
  11. Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access 
  12. Restrict physical access to cardholder data 
  13. Regularly Monitor and Test Networks

This guide is intended to help merchants implement the Webmama eCommerce application in a way that is compliant with version the PCI DSS.

Payment Application DSS (PA-DSS) 
The Payment Application Data Security Standard was originally created by Visa (as Payment Application Best Practices – PABP) as an aid to software providers to help build secure payment applications. PA-DSS validation proves that an application can be implemented in a way that is compliant with the PCI DSS.

Webmama eCommerce has been designed and certified to meet all of the requirements of the PA-DSS. This does not automatically make you, the merchant, PCI DSS compliant. It is necessary that the recommendations and instructions in this guide are followed. 

For additional information about PA-DSS, or to view Webmama eCommerce in the official list of validated applications, please visit the URL below.

PCI Compliance and Validation 
The PCI Security Standards Council is not a compliance organisation. They do not require compliance, but individual payment networks may. Visa is one such example. They require you to comply with the PCI DSS, and you must complete some degree of validation based on the annual transaction volume processed. All merchants who handle Visa payments are required to perform at least some level of validation. The URL below directs you to Visa’s Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and has complete details and validation procedures.

A qualified security assessor is the only one who can validate your PCI compliance. A current list of assessors is maintained by the PCI and can be found at this URL:
