PCI DSS 3.0 Update

A Cisco and Verizon perspective on key 3.0 changes (PDF - 213 KB)

What is PCI Compliance for DSS?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance is the Data Security Standard (DSS) that applies to all organizations that process, store, or transmit credit card information. PCI compliance helps protect credit card data, personal information, and customer identities from malicious behavior.

Cisco Compliance Solutions Simplify the Compliance Process

With their comprehensive, validated frameworks, Cisco Compliance Solutions help customers plan, build, and manage compliance activities more effectively and efficiently. The solutions offer compliance resources for Payment Card Industry (PCI) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

As attacks become more sophisticated and malicious, the risk of data breaches and devastating consequences grows. Our solution helps simplify PCI compliance through a network segmentation approach.

Cisco is a member of the PCI Board of Advisors, DSS Special Interest Groups, and Technical Working Groups. We continue to increase our abilities to offer insights on simplifying, achieving, and maintaining PCI compliance.
