Did you know that CARI.net is San Diego’s first PCI 3.0 compliant data center?
It shows CARI.net’s level of commitment when it comes to keeping your data safe and secure.If you’re not processing credit cards you may think PCI compliance is not relevant to your business, but this could not be further from the truth. By not hosting your data in a PCI compliant data center you run the risk of losing clients. Your clients put their trust in you to have the data for their applications hosted in a secure environment. Without PCI DSS 3.0, that data is not being protected as well as it should. PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). It is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. PCI DSS 3.0 went into effect on January 1, 2015. If you are currently 2.0 compliant, now is the time to move to the 3.0 standard. For a complete summary of changes from PCI DSS Version 2.0 to 3.0 click here. Most significantly, the PCI DSS 3.0 has added physical security requirements for cardholder data processing locations not present in 2.0. The new requirement, section 9.3, is stricter about employee access to sensitive areas. Vendors must explicitly authorize access for its employees to have access to credit card data. At CARI.net, we focus on physical security, so you are the only one with access to your server cabinet’s sensitive information.
