Enterprises are seeking ways to simplify and reduce the scope of the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, with shrinking the footprint where cardholder data is located throughout their organization being the go-to, proven method. By taking entire systems out of scope for PCI assessments, these organizations are dramatically lowering the cost, complexity and anxiety of compliance. And significantly increasing audit success. How? Tokenization.
This paper explores the use of tokenization as a best practice in improving the security of credit card transactions, while at the same time minimizing the headaches and angst associated with PCI DSS compliance.
