How to Implement PCI DSS E-commerce Compliance?
The implementation of ecommerce PCI DSS can be accomplished in several ways: you can choose to do it yourself, use the services of a specialized agency, or combine both methods.
Obviously, by delegating PCI DSS compliance to a third-party professional vendor, you’ll offload the major liability without compromising the continuity of your business processes. With that said, third-party services might prove costly.
To save up on those expenses, you might check if your platform’s vendor offers ecommerce PCI compliance services at an extra fee, which might turn out to be cheaper than if you decide to seek those services elsewhere.
Otherwise, you might choose to undergo ecommerce PCI compliance on your own. In that case, you’ll be required to ascertain the security of credit card data, its movement, and storage in all locations. Such assurance requires engineering work to build a secure, compliant environment, as well as audits, and penetration testing.
