PCI Services

Handshake Networking helps many merchants and service providers, large and small, prepare for PCI DSS compliance.

The only ASV with a team anywhere in Hong Kong / Macau

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was created to standardize the data security compliance programs across the payment brand industry, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc. These regulations are stringent and often confusing; employing a consultant to help your company or organization navigate this procedure will make the process significantly easier and more efficient.

The requirement mandates merchants and service providers' data security environments conform to a strict and often confusing level of regulation. Merchants show proof of compliance by submitting a self-assessment questionnaire, and, for merchants who store and transmit data card information, a penetration test conducted by Approved Scanning Vendors.

Handshake has years of experience helping companies and organizations navigate the trecherous path to compliance. Call or email our consultants with your questions about the PCI DSS, and we can help you quickly, efficiently, and effectively become compliant–and stay compliant.

Don’t be left out in the cold.

You don’t wait till after you get sick to buy insurance. Likewise, you shouldn’t put off your preparations until your acquirers or business partners ask for proof of your compliance. The prerequisites for compliance are complex, because they vary depending on the size of the merchant/service provider, and the actual requirements set down by the bank or acquirer.

Handshake can help.

Handshake Networking Ltd, Hong Kong’s leading information security consultancy, is your partner in achieving compliance with the PCI DSS -— the standard credit card industry requirement. Handshake has been certified as an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) since 2006. This qualifies Handshake to verify the network security of businesses accepting and processing credit card transactions.

Noncompliance is a gamble you can’t afford to make.

If your company or organization is not compliant with the standard, the payment brands will not be liable for any credit card fraud perpetrated on your system, leaving your company hanging out on a limb. High-risk merchants could have their merchants’ license pulled. Unprepared, your company could be in for a rude awakening.

Getting ready has no downside.

This is money you’ll be spending anyway. Prepare your company or organization for compliance with one test, and rest easy knowing you are ready for what is to come.
