PCI Compliance Made Easy!

More Info

PCI Compliance

Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance can seem daunting. That’s why every day we receive questions from dozens of terrified business owners about what responsibilities a small merchant has when it comes to compliance.

It doesn’t matter how many transactions a company does, it is a sure shot that PCI compliance applies to you, your business, and every company that collects, transmits, processes or stores cardholder information. This includes point-of-sale (POS) terminals (remember the Target hack?), e-commerce and even the lonely mail/phone orders.

PCI DSS is not a federal law or a state law. Rather, it’s a security standard developed by the the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). The council is composed of credit card bigwigs such as American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and JCB.

PCI SSC developed the Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a comprehensive security standard that acts as a set of guidelines for merchants to ensure the protection of their customer’s sensitive card data. The industry regulations were put in place on June of 2005, in a secret cave. The PCI SSC enforces the security standard with corporal punishment and/or fines (but really just fines). It applies to any company that accepts credit cards in any form (except for a hologram projection). If your company stores, processes, or transmits any of the information recorded on a credit or debit card then you are required to be PCI compliant or face serious consequences such as:

  1. Compensation to regain lost trust. Sometimes after the general public has lost faith in your company, the only way to get them back is with bribes.
  2. Legal fees. The world is quick to sue. If you suffer a security breach prepare for lawsuits to follow.
  3. Bank fines. If you’re not PCI Compliant and you suffer a security breach your merchant bank is going to come down on you for every customer who they had to reimburse after the theft or fraud.
  4. Federal audits. The FTC might get involved if you’re company is one of the big players. They might audit you from that point until eternity and throw in a few fines while they’re at it.
  5. Cleanup. Chances are that you’ll have to investigate the security breach, hire or fire employees and up your security.
  6. Profits will fall. After the internet finds out about your security breach nobody is going to come near your business for a long while. Remember, many large companies have declared bankruptcy after a security breach. Target’s profits fell $440 million in their fourth fiscal quarter following their POS security breach in 2013.
  7. Google will haunt you. Even a decade after your security breach, everytime someone Googles your name, chances are one of the breach headlines will surface. If your company was once a bright, shining success in the eCommerce world, it certainly isn’t anymore.
  8. Angry witches will beat you with broomsticks. As a merchant it is your responsibility to protect consumer credit card data and any other data you collect. This could include:
  • Card readers
  • POS systems
  • Store networks and wireless access routers
  • Credit card storage and transmission
  • E-commerce applications and web services
  • Phone numbers from over-zealous, flirtatious, househusbands or housewives.

The PCI DSS standards are in place to give merchants, like you, a step by step list of what you need to do to meet compliance standards so that you’re not schooled by the terrifying PCI SSC humans. This standard consists of 12 requirements that are fairly direct in their instructions on what one must do to be compliant (it no longer involves a riddle and a troll named rumpelstiltskin). What’s more, the PCI Security Standards Council even explains why you should put each of the requirements in place. Get a copy of the PCI DSS 3.0 requirements at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/index.php. It is also required that your business maintains current compliance at all times. Small merchants can do this by filling out an annual self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) and fulfilling any other compliance validation requirements set by their merchant bank such as Security Scanning to PCI Compliance. It’s very easy to “fall out of” compliance; for example, failing a PCI Security Scan, forgetting to renew malware, etc. If at any time your business is not in complete compliance, your business will be liable should you suffer a security breach. The PCI SSC will come for you. They’re like the Russian mafia, only not at all. Still, you don’t want to get on their bad side.

The ability to accept credit cards is absolutely necessary for business owners to conduct business regardless of size. Losing the privilege to process cards could mean bankruptcy for even the largest corporation. You don’t want your children to end up like that little orphan girl in Annie (the original, not the remake), so please, make sure you’re compliant.


A Beginners Guide to Call Recording and Compliance #oak #innovation, #news, #call

A Beginners Guide to Call Recording and Compliance

In this educational piece, we look at what the law says regarding call recording and financial transactions and how Oak’s solutions can help you tick the right boxes.

Compliance is a murky subject. A casual glance presents the uninitiated with a series of rules and regulations that can seem at once critical and yet apparently contradictory. Some state that certain financial transactions must be recorded, whilst others, so it seems, demand that financial details be excluded or covered up. The only thing that appears obvious is that as a company you have the obligation to get it right or you will be in trouble.

Let us shine a little light on the situation.

There are currently several guidelines and laws relevant to the recording of calls. First and foremost under the Data Protection Act. you must let your employees and customers know that you are recording calls and why the ubiquitous calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes serves this purpose well. In terms of what calls or parts of calls must be recorded or not, these are laid out by two central bodies: the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) and the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). In this article we ll examine the requirements of both of these and explain how Oak s products work to help you meet the necessary criteria.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Thou shalt record thy calls

The FCA regulates firms and financial advisers so that markets and financial systems remain sound, stable and resilient, thereby inhibiting abuse and promoting confidence in the sector. Since March 2009, the FCA has determined that certain types of business must record some calls in particular:

i) calls that conclude an agreement with any client or with another regulated firm on behalf of a client; or

ii) calls that are conducted with a professional client or eligible counterparty with a view to concluding an agreement.

These calls must be recorded and stored securely so that they may not be tampered with (this also complies with EU law). They must also be made easily accessible for a minimum of six months .

These rules apply to firms whose products include qualifying investments (shares, bonds, options and futures) that are traded on a prescribed market, or other types of investments that are related to these. The rules do not apply to other financial services (financial advisors, insurance and mortgage brokers, solicitors, estate agents and firms receiving and executing loans). However, these firms may well be advised to use call recording.

The FCA s Policy on Telephone Recording 08/01 2.1 states that recorded communication increases the likelihood of successful prosecution. This in turn, it argues, reduces the perceived value of committing market abuse of the system in the first place, and in principle leads to greater market confidence and greater price efficiency.

Since November 2011, the FCA does not discriminate between landline and mobile calls, so a good call recording solution will be able to securely store transactions made on both.

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Thou shalt not record thy calls

PCI DSS does not just affect certain financial services, but is concerned with any business that handles card payments. Its purpose is to minimise the risk of fraud etc through the best practice handling of card details. For our purposes here, that means that if your company uses call recording software, that software must ensure that the card validation codes and values in particular (the actual payment details needed to transfer money) are not accessible following authorisation and preferably not stored on a system. The PCI DSS website states:

It is a violation of PCI DSS requirement 3.2 to store any sensitive authentication data, including card validation codes and values, after authorisation even if encrypted.

It is therefore prohibited to use any form of digital audio recording for storing CAV2, CVC2, CCV2, CID codes if that data can be queried. Where technology exists to help prevent the recording of these data elements, such technology should be enabled.

For companies who record calls and take payments over the phone, this is a major compliance issue. Any call recording software must offer features that allow the required parts of the calls to be hidden or omitted.

Oak Call Recording Solutions

Oak s call recording solutions have been designed to help you comply with all the legislation outlined above.

For when you must record calls, Oak solutions offer.

  • Full security – All call recordings are automatically encrypted and tamperproof.
  • High capacity storage Our storage capacity far exceeds the minimum requirement of 6 months; you may choose to archive calls for much longer.
  • Easy search and retrieve Calls can be found easily using criteria such as date, time, extension, CLI, DDI, phone number, user defined flags or even customer reference if linked to a CRM system.
  • Fraud deterrence Just letting callers know that you record calls can prevent misconduct.

Mobile compliance – Oak s mobile application is currently available for Blackberry users only. This is because the app can be loaded centrally onto the Blackberry Enterprise Server (rather than individual handsets) making it scalable from one mobile user to hundreds. The app enables calls to be recorded and stored on the business central Oak call recording solution, keeping all the call information in one place. The app we use is secure and tamper proof, it cannot be turned off, and will even flag up if a user tries to change the SIM. It is also a cost-effective solution, as most alternatives require a separate SIM and may vastly increase your call charges.

. And for when you must not record calls

Oak s solutions also provide a number of means to ensure that card details are not recorded or stored on the system. Whichever option you choose, that part of the call is simply replaced with a silence.

  • DTMF Detection This is the most basic method that will work on any system. To pause and resume the recording of a call, the agent simply presses a series of digits on their phone pad. The CV2 number is not recorded at all while the rest of the call is recorded and made easily available for playback. There is also a built in timeout option that can tell the system to resume recording should the agent forget to do so manually. Oak line side call recording solutions include this manual option as standard.
  • PCI Click An Oak software client is installed on each client PC allowing a user to login as themselves with an associated extension. Calls are stopped and restarted on demand by right clicking. This method requires a CTI connection.
  • PCI Web This automated method integrates Oak s call recording system with a business s payment system and is set up at the time of installation. A call can be paused either by a change of URL (when the user goes to a different screen to input payment) or by clicking on specific fields on the payment system. The call recording is resumed when the user clicks on a certain field or through some other agreed trigger. A CTI connection is essential to ensure that the correct call is paused.

Hopefully things will feel a little clearer now, but If you have further questions, would like to discuss the best options for your business, or want to know more about the benefits of call recording, then do get in touch. We d be very happy to help.

The only email archiving solution you need

Email is flexible and convenient—often serving as an organization’s primary written communication channel. As such, more than half of an organization’s’ confidential information is stored in email form, which, when paired with stringent email retention policies, creates momentous challenges for IT departments.

Save time and money by reducing mail server storage, while simultaneously increasing email platform performance

Effortlessly manage emails against exclusion, hold, and disposition policies

FreePCI Compliance:FreePCI Scan: Why becoming PCI Compliant matters

PCI Free provides free compliance resources including quarterly scans and questionnaires. Merchants and business owners can save time and money with free PCI compliant merchant solutions.

If your business accepts or processes payment cards, it must comply with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards). All businesses and merchants that store, process and or transmit card holder information are now required to be PCI compliant.

PCI DSS is a set of requirements for enhancing data security. This originally began as individual programs from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. To facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB aligned their individual policies to release the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

Is PCI Compliance just another profit center for my merchant processor?

Many believe that the new PCI compliance standards are little more than new revenue stream for merchant processors. Most small business owners and merchants have little information about the process and as a result wind up paying inflated PCI compliance fees. Merchant processors have been charging up to 300.00. Completing a form is frequently all that is required for many merchants to meet the standards, charging small businesses 300.00 for nothing more than completing a form is excessive, to say the least.

Smart business owners becomePCI Compliant

In today’s economy, merchants and small business ownersare required to thoroughly evaluate operating costs, merchant processing fees is an area frequently overlooked.Evaluating and comparing merchant processing solutions including fees for services such as ours for your business can be well worth the time it takes and result in considerable savings for your company.

Prices – 35 Gas Safety Certificate #electrical #compliance #certificate

Your legal duties

There are four main areas of law which a property must comply with before it is ready to be let. They have been listed below and I have added my own notes:

Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994 (as amended) – all gas appliances must be safe – this is a legal requirement for all rented property and this needs to be done every 12 months.

The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 – all electrical appliances must be safe – you have a responsibility to ensure that all electrical appliances, circuits, cables, switches and fuse board is safe and sound. There is no legal requirement to produce any certificate BUT, if the unfortunate did happen, would you be covered? A simple PAT test will ensure that all appliances left in your property are tested for earthing, continuity and soundness. All appliances are labelled. This is one way you could prove that you have taken your responsibilty seriously.

Smoke Carbon Monoxide Detectors Act 2015 the property should have smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms – I can supply and fit as a non profit service. Please don’t forget to add this service on. The recent changes to the law require landlords to install smoke alarms on every floor of their property, and test them at the start of every tenancy. Landlords also need to install carbon monoxide alarms in high risk rooms such as those where a solid fuel heating system is installed.
More information here .

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2008 – from 1st October 2008 an Energy Performance Certificate must be made available to a prospective tenant. This is a legal requirement and although does not have an effect on safety, you can still be fined for not having one. An agent will always ask if you have on before selling you their own services.

The Department for Communities and Local Government makes recommendations to Landlords and Tenants on how to ensure compliance to the Safety Regulations. The CLG website is a useful reference for the legislation, and clearly states that there is a legal requirement for electrical safety:
http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommunity/BuyingAndSellingYourHome/LettingYourHome/DG_4001391 amongst other things.

Gas Safety
I can carry out am annual gas safety inspection to the property and provide the necessary Gas Safety Certificate (CP12)

Electrical Equipment Safety
I can inspect and test the landlord s electrical appliances (PAT testing) and carry out a visual survey of the electrical power points, light switches, earth bonding and fuse box once a year and possibly prior to a new tenancy. The landlord is provided with Visual Inspection Reports and Appliance Test Results which also help to control property damage

Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) to the Electrical Installation
The electrical circuitry should be inspected and tested on a five yearly cycle. I can carry out this inspection and provide a full report (PIR) with any recommendations needed to bring the electrical system up to the standard required under current regulations BS7671. Some insurance companies require this inspection and any safety issues rectified, before granting insurance cover. Most, if not all, Housing Associations and Councils require this if you are intending to rent you property to them for a fixed 1,3 or 5 year period

Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Safety
If required, I can provide a full inspection of the property and advise where smoke and carbon monoxide alarms could be fitted – I supply these at no extra cost and installation is free


Why use me?

  1. I promise to answer the phone, give you a timed appointment, turn up on time and offer you an excellent service.
  2. I am registered with Gas Safe, which is a legal requirement when working on gas. It used to be Corgi but that changed as of 1st April 2009.

  4. I have a City and Guilds inspection and testing qualification and can carry out PAT testing on all electrical appliances.
  5. I offer huge savings. I will match or beat any genuine quote you have, call me and try. The more services you need, the more you save. Huge discounts for multiple properties, multiple services etc.
  6. Timed, evening and weekend appointments to suit you or your tenant. I prefer to liaise with the tenants anyway, not only saving you the hassle but it also enables me to plan a time to suit both of us.
  7. I always carry my ID cards. Ask to see them. Dont pay someone who isn’t qualified. The certificate will be worthless.
