Reducing PCI DSS Scope with the First Data® TransArmor® Solution
Organizations who handle payment card data are obligated to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Any device or application that process, transmits, or stores cardholder data and anything connected to those devices or applications is “in scope” for PCI DSS. This inclusive definition of what needs to be secured has made PCI DSS compliance a complex and costly endeavor for many merchants. Scope reduction – the process of limiting or shrinking the CDE – is a way to reduce costs and effort associated with complying with PCI DSS. This whitepaper discusses how the First Data® TransArmor® solution can enable scope reduction and ease the burden of PCI compliance.
