PCI Compliance & ServiceWorks

What is PCI Compliance?

PCI compliance refers to adhering to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which is a set of security standards established by major credit card companies to protect the sensitive data of cardholders. The purpose of PCI compliance is to ensure that businesses that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment to prevent data breaches and protect customer information.

The PCI DSS consists of a comprehensive set of requirements and best practices that organizations must follow to achieve compliance. These requirements cover various aspects of data security, including network security, access control, encryption, vulnerability management, and regular monitoring and testing.

Is ServiceWorks PCI Compliant?

Since ServiceWorks does not store any credit card information within the software, we are not required to maintain PCI Compliance. All credit card information entered into the software is stored within the third party payment gateway of your choice, the only information that is transmitted to ServiceWorks is the last 4 digits of the card number
