PCI Rapid Comply®
by First Data™
Get a helping hand in PCI compliance from First Data, the world’s largest payment processor.
What is PCI DSS?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are a set of guidelines created by the major credit card networks (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB) to help merchants implement the necessary infrastructure; including security policies, approved hardware/software, and other procedures to better protect, store and transfer sensitive cardholder data.
What if I am not in PCI Compliance?
Not being in compliance with PCI-DSS is putting your business at greater risk1 to the growing number of security breaches and theft occurring to those who deem PCI compliance a low priority. In 2011, 96% of the cardholder data breaches investigated by the U.S. Secret Service and Verizon’s forensic analysis unit were not compliant with PCI-DSS at the time of data theft.2
Do I have to use PCI Rapid Comply®?
PCI Rapid Comply is available to all of our merchants shortly after the first 60 days of processing. You will receive a letter detailing the service and how to register/login. This service is a step-by-step tool allowing for a smoother PCI compliance experience. The service also includes a quarterly scanning tool if required at no additional cost(s). We hope you choose this solution as we have used it first hand and truly believe in its ease of use compared to other services. You are not obligated to use this service, but you will be required to stay in compliance and submit proof of compliance to First Data every year or be faced with a Non-Receipt of PCI Validation fee to your account every month. If you choose to use a 3rd party service for PCI DSS compliance, you will be required to pay that vendor directly and not through BlueSky Merchant Services, LLC. In addition to any fees charged by a 3rd party PCI DSS vendor, you will still be required to pay the PCI Compliance Services Fee charged by BlueSky Merchant Services, LLC annually. We highly recommend you use the PCI Rapid Comply service, and stay in compliance every quarter/year to avoid any unwanted fees or security breaches.
