    The PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire is a checklist ranging from 19 to 87 pages, created and distributed by the PCI Security Standards Council. It’s used as a mechanism for sellers to self-validate their PCI DSS compliance. Square does not require sellers to complete an SAQ, or to self validate, since Square’s hardware and software complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

  • Is there a PCI noncompliance fee?

    Yes, there are typically fees associated with PCI noncompliance. If your business does not comply with PCI standards, you could be at risk for data breaches, fines, card replacement costs, costly forensic audits and investigations into your business, brand damage and more.

What is PCI?

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

The PCI is a financial industry sector that is in charge of all electronic payments. Sensitive financial data is continually communicated to all areas of the world when purchases are made through debit, credit, ATM, POS, prepaid, and e-purse systems.

What is PCI DSS?

Merchants and vendors must follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to secure cardholder data. The PCI DSS defines a minimum degree of security for enterprises that store, handle, or transmit payment card data.

Who Must Comply with PCI DSS?

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

The term "standard" in the PCI Data Security Standard may lead some to assume that PCI compliance is a "nice to have" rather than a "must have or else." In actuality, the PCI DSS is a regulation. Consider this: the credit card companies who offer credit/debit cards to ordinary people (your customers) will permit you to process those payment cards. The credit card companies will not allow you handle their payment cards if you do not comply with the PCI DSS compliance rules. Furthermore, you may face a monetary penalty. The PCI Data Security Standard is not optional unless you want to operate a "cash only" firm


The engaging, interactive PCI DSS and PCI compliance training courses offered by Aspire enable cardholder data handlers and supervisors to achieve PCI compliance, pass audits, and avoid data breaches.

Common Cases Of Data leaks

A data breach is terrible news for any company. If the leaked information is connected to credit card information, your company will have a major data security and compliance problem to deal with. A data breach might happen in a number of ways. Take a look at a few examples:

Human Error

Data breaches are frequently caused by human mistake. Many businesses place a premium on technological issues that lead to breaches and fall behind in attempts to address human factors through Security Awareness Training.

Insider Threat

One of the other major causes of a data leak is an employee or contractor having authorized and privileged access to internal organizational resources


Many individuals believe that malware produces damage in a single, quick burst and then vanishes. In truth, some of the most dangerous viruses may hide in plain sight and steal data for years before being identified.

Unpatched Software

Data breaches are frequently caused by software and systems that have been left unpatched for an extended period of time. Infrastructures grow infested with known vulnerabilities over time, eventually becoming the source of a data leak.

How to Detect Data Leaks

Data Breach Assessments

Many sophisticated assaults are designed to remain undetected for as long as feasible. As a result, data leak/breach evaluations should be performed at least once every quarter for large businesses and once every six months for smaller ones.

course Picture

Data breaches can, of course, be detected through internal audits and testing. Also, keep an eye on the dark web for signs of your company's data. It's a huge red flag if you can find your company's details there.

Data Leak Prevention (DLP)

DLP software functions as a firewall between outsiders and sensitive data within the company. Insider dangers can also be detected. It employs a number of criteria to detect sensitive information and actions that may result in unintentional exposure. In today's cybersecurity threat landscape, investing in a solid DLP should be viewed as a "must-have."

course Picture
Comprehensive Analysis

Conduct a comprehensive examination of all important systems and devices' processes and services. Conduct a thorough network traffic analysis as well. If done in-house, the inquiry may become a black hole that eats up time and money. To save time and money, consider hiring an expert to do the exam.

How to Prevent Data Leaks

course Picture
Human Firewalls

Teach your employees how to spot and avoid hacker traps. If just one employee clicks on a phishing email or accesses a harmful website, all the technical defenses in the world won't help.

course Picture

Invest in a reliable Data Leak Prevention system. When setting up your DLP, make sure you know what data is critical to your company and that you have procedures in place to protect it.

course Picture

Encryption is essential for the security of payment card data in general. On all PCs, gadgets, and mobile devices, make sure you employ strong encryption.

course Picture

Organizations maintain basic security and reduce the risk of regulatory fines by adhering to data protection standards. Develop a data security and compliance plan, as well as policies and processes to support data privacy and security, to stay compliant.

course Picture
Monitor & Track

Don't allow a false feeling of security to sneak into your company just because you've invested in advanced cybersecurity software and tools. Manual monitoring, tracking, and human instinct remain critical components of cyber defense. Similarly, never believe that outsourcing information security functions ensure that your data is secure.
