We're serious about security.
The credit card industry has adopted strict security guidelines defined by the PCI Security Standards Council. While these guidelines are in place to ensure your website is secure from hacker threats, the guidelines are also designed to pass liability onto you in the event that your business is not PCI compliant.
What We Do
The ecommerce website we develop for your business will always pass a PCI compliance web-app scan. Some merchant providers require a quarterly PCI scan as part of your merchant agreement.
What Does This Mean?
What this means is that our coding practices follow the strict guidelines defined by the PCI Security Standards Council and as a result your website will pass a PCI web-app scan.
- CVV and Credit Card data is never stored
- No sensitive data is stored in cookies
- All user input is filtered
- Your website supports SSL
PCI Compliant Hosting
Another aspect of PCI compliance is the company you choose to host your website. We can can help you select a PCI compliant web host which is also a requirement that your business must follow to ensure that your website is secure. Note: this is only a requirement for Moneris and Beanstream.
PCI Compliant Practices and Procedures
The final set of requirements for PCI compliance involves you the business owner being vigilant and secure with regards to the way you manage your ecommerce website. Never share your passwords. Always use random passwords. Never access your admin panel from public computers. Your merchant provider may require you to answer a questionnaire and sign documents stating that your general business practices are in line with these requirements.
Why it Matters
Because PCI compliance liability is passed onto the business owner, business owners need to work with experienced web design companies (like NextTree) that are aware of these issues.
