New employees must undergo PCI training upon hiring.

Existing employees must undergo PCI training annually.

Access to the cardholder data environment must be restricted to only those employees with a need to access and physical controls must be in place to protect the cardholder data environment. Tier 3 Requirements in addition to general requirements above ; Management in Tier 3 departments must confirm that the third party vendors through whom they are accessing Paypal or other Controller approved online payment services are PCI compliant.

Although electronic storage of credit card data is prohibited by this policy, the University will perform a quarterly network scan against the cardholder data environment to ensure that the policy has not been violated.

The Self-Assessment Questionnaire is a set of Questionnaires documents that merchants are required to complete every year and submit to their transaction Bank.

Acquiring banks are required to comply with PCI DSS as well as to have their compliance validated by means of an audit. In the event of a security breach, any compromised entity which was not PCI DSS compliant at the time of breach will be subject to additional card scheme penalties, such as fines. However, the laws of some U. In , Minnesota enacted a law prohibiting the retention of some types of payment card data subsequent to 48 hours after authorization of the transaction.

Visa and MasterCard impose fines on merchants even when there is no fraud loss at all, simply because the fines 'are profitable to them'. It is often stated that there are only twelve 'Requirements' for PCI compliance.

Others have suggested that PCI DSS is a step toward making all businesses pay more attention to IT security, even if minimum standards are not enough to completely eradicate security problems.

And it works. Regulation forces companies to take security more seriously, and sells more products and services. Assessments examine the compliance of merchants and services providers with the PCI DSS at a specific point in time and frequently utilize a sampling methodology to allow compliance to be demonstrated through representative systems and processes.
