PCI DSS Compliance – What you CAN and CANNOT Store Re: Cardholder Data and Sensitive Authentication Data (SAD)
Regarding Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) compliance, commonly known as PCI DSS, there’s seems to be some confusion at times as to what CAN and CANNOT be stored. The PCI DSS standards are actually quite clear on this, so here they are. The following information CANbe stored for purposes of complying with PCI DSS:
The Primary Account Number (PAN)
Please keep in mind, though you are permitted to store this information, it needs to be “protected”. How so? By ensuring the PAN is rendered unreadable, by methods such as encryption, hashing or truncating.
What Merchants/Service Providers Should NOT Store – Sensitive Authentication Data (SAD)
Regarding PCI DSS compliance, the following is a list of information which should NOT be stored (however, there are exceptions, which we’ll discuss):
Full Magnetic Stripe/Track Data (Track 1 and Track 2)
CID, CAV2, CVC2, and CVV2 codes
Pin and Pin Block
The exceptions to this are simply the following: If there is a compelling and justified business reason for storing this data, then it may be permitted. Careful consultation with a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) can help you answer this question.
And lastly, don’t confuse the “service codes” with the “CID, CAV2, CVC2, and CVV2 codes”, which seems to happen quite often. Remember, the “service code” is actually the 3 or 4 digit number on the magnetic-stripe that specifies the acceptance requirements and limitations for magnetic-stripe read transactions. In short, it’s imbedded on the magnetic stripe on the track data, typically known as Track 1 data (you can store that, it’s allowed). The CID, CAV2, CVC2, and CVV2 codes are displayed on the cards either on the front or the back.

When it comes to regulatory compliance – particularly with the PCI DSS standards – companies loathe spending time and money on industry specific mandates that aren’t revenue generating products and services. Even with that said, businesses know it’s a mandate and it’s got to be done, which means putting in place all necessary policies, procedures, processes, and practices for ensuring compliance is being met.

But hold on, becoming compliant does help with winning new business contracts requiring such compliance, and it does help ensure the safety and security of cardholder data within one’s environment – so these are good things!

Offering Numerous PCI Services to Ohio Merchants & Service Providers
Need to become compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, then you’ve found the right company! Materdei Consulting, LLC, offers the following PCI DSS services for businesses in the greater Columbus and Cincinnati areas:
1. PCI Policies and Procedures Writing: One of the most time-consuming aspects of PCI DSS compliance is authoring information security policies and procedures, so turn to the experts who’ve been helping Ohio businesses since 2009, and that’s us! We offer the very best documentation available, and for instant download at pcipolicyportal.com. Saving time and money on PCI policies and procedures development has never been easier or more affordable.
From the Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ) that most merchants and service providers in Ohio can assess with, to the much-dreaded Level 1 onsite assessments performed by a PCI-QSA, documentation is a must have, so the need for high-quality, industry leading templates is essential. Our documentation is available for instant download today and comes complete will all necessary policies, procedures, forms, and so much more. Visit pcipolicyportal.com today to learn more. Whatever the industry or business sector you’re in, pcipolicyportal.com has a packet specifically designed for you.
Don’t forget that along with needing PCI policy documents, there’s also two (2) big additional PCI DSS mandates; performing an annual risk assessment, along with implementing some type of security awareness & training for your employees. Luckily, Materdei Consulting, LLC provides both services to Ohio merchants and service providers with our award-winning documentation contained within our PCI Policy Packets, so visit pcipolicyportal.com today to learn more. Need to speak with somebody directly – no problem – call us at 424-274-1952 today and we’d be happy to answer your questions.
This is important to note as many Ohio businesses are spending large amounts of money on costly risk assessment software, and even more money on expensive online security awareness training portals. There’s simply no need for this as the documentation we offer is high-quality, easy-to-use and implement, and included for immediate download in many of the packets we offer for sale at pcipolicyportal.com. From 1 employee to 1,000 or more, there’s not limit on the usage of our security awareness training packets!
2. Assistance with SAQ Completion:While many merchants in Ohio can “technically” self-assess via any number of the PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ), you’ll still be doing yourself a favor by reaching out to experts who can help guide you through the often complicated SAQ forms. Sure, SAQ stands for “Self-assess”, but easier said than done as most companies becoming challenged very quickly as they start going through the various questionnaires, and that’s why we’re here to help. Visit pcipolicyportal.com today to learn more about our solutions, services, and PCI SAQ Policy Toolkits, along with emailing us at email@example.com, or even calling today at 424-274-1952.
And remember this, if you have to comply with two of the more complex and lengthy SAQ documents, such as SAQ A-EP and SAQ D, then you’ll really want to consider obtaining expert advice and that’s because both of these questionnaires essentially incorporate the vast majority of tests you’d have to comply with for a Level 1 onsite assessment by a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI-QSA). Talk to the experts today at pcipolicyportal.com for assistance with the SAQ documents; we can help.
3. Continuous Monitoring Exercises: Great, so you’ve become PCI DSS compliant, now the battle has just begun. How’s that? Because once all of your internal policies, procedures, and processes are in place, keeping them there and ensuring they’re functioning as designed can be a real challenge. The key is to implement “continuous monitoring” – a concept whereby internal personnel take charge and monitor your controls for purposes of both regulatory compliance and for best practices. It’s about finding that “PCI compliance champion” inside your business and charging them with such a task. Without having such a person, your internal control structure will come under many challenges.
4. Assistance with Vendor Selection for other Necessary Services:Many of the mandates for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) require a fair number of technical provisioning and hardening documents to be in place, it’s just that simple. From anti-virus to file integrity monitoring – and more – Ohio businesses will need to source quality vendors for obtaining such tools and solutions. We can help, as we have years of experience in sourcing high-quality, cost-effective regulatory compliance tools for companies, to talk to us today and let us help you find the right vendor.
Another big mandate for PCI DSS compliance – depending on which Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) you fall into, or a Level 1 onsite assessment – is that of vulnerability scanning and penetration testing. These are two (2) strict mandates for PCI compliance that MUST be performed. This means you’ll need to find a suitable scanning vendor, incorporate scanning procedures regularly, and also possibly perform a penetration test annually. These mandates can be incredibly taxing and time-consuming for Ohio businesses, thus it’s important to work with a firm for helping provide a roadmap for implementation of such measures, and we can assist.
5. Partnering with NDB for Level 1 Onsite Assessments: Is your business located in Ohio and you need an actual PCI-QSA to perform a Level 1 onsite assessment, then we can help, as we’ve developed a strategic alliance with NDB Advisory, one of North America’s leading providers of PCI DSS assessments. Contact Charles Denyer at or call him at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705 to learn more.

1. PCI DSS Scoping & Readiness Assessment. It’s imperative that Oregon businesses have a strong understanding of their internal controls and what policies, procedures, and processes require attention for ensuring PCI DSS compliance. For that reason, a PCI DSS readiness assessment is an absolute must, as merchants and service providers will need to determine audit scope, who’s involved in terms of remediating gaps and deficiencies, what the costs are – both operationally and financially – and the exact timeframe for getting things done.
Without a PCI DSS scoping & readiness assessment – particularly for merchants and service providers new to the PCI DSS mandates – you’re setting yourself up for immense challenges, so keep this in mind. Our PCI DSS scoping & readiness assessments are brief, cost-effective, and incredibly valuable in terms of long-term PCI success.
2. Policy and Procedure Writing.If you stop and think about some of the more time-consuming endeavors for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) mandates, policy and procedures writing often tops the list, and for good reasons. First, companies loathe the documentation aspect of compliance, which leaves a huge gap to be filled in terms of documentation. Second, it’s such a tedious and numbing process, that nobody ever seems to get around to performing such a task, ultimately creating a real deficiency – and need – in terms of PCI DSS compliance. Call us today at 424-274-1952 to learn more about our policy writing services for Oregon businesses.
Our documentation – available for instant download today at pcipolicyportal.com – has been extensively researched and written by one of North America’s longest licensed PCI-QSA’s. Additionally, the templates we offer map directly to the twelve (12) PCI DSS standards, thus ensuring you’ve got all the necessary documentation needed for PCI compliance. Additionally, because the material is so well written, detailed, and current with many of today’s best I.T. frameworks, the policies can easily be used for many other regulatory compliance mandates. Saving time and money with PCI DSS compliance begins by downloading our templates today.
Writing documentation for regulatory compliance – especially for PCI DSS – can be incredibly tedious and time-consuming, and it’s exactly why merchants and service providers all throughout Oregon – the United States and the Globe – have been turning to the experts at pcipolicyportal.com since 2009. Want to save thousands of dollars and hundreds of operational hours on policy creation – sure you do – so download any one of our industry leading PCI Policy Packets today and get started with creating the very best compliance documentation. With pcipolicyportal.com, PCI DSS compliance is fast, quick, and easy.
3. Assistance with the Various SAQ Documents. Luckily, the vast majority of Oregon merchants and service providers can “self-assess” for PCI DSS compliance via any number of the actual PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaires. The challenge, however, is finding the time and having the necessary expertise on board to successfully answer and complete the entire SAQ document, so that’s where we come in. Materdei Consulting, LLC has years of experience helping businesses successfully complete the PCI DSS SAQ documents, so contact us today at email@example.com to learn more. From SAQ A to SAQ D, the questionnaires can be extremely complex and challenging, and it’s why businesses turn to us for much-needed guidance and support.
4. Security Awareness Training Materials.Security awareness training – while a strict mandate for compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) – is also a best practice that EVERY business should be performing. Remember, your employees are without question your greatest asset, so treat them with respect, but also give them the tools and training they need to succeed in today’s cybersecurity world we all live and work in. Threats and breaches will happen – there’s no getting around this – but what you can do is put in place incident response measures – and essential training protocols – for helping mitigate any breaches, if they do occur.
Look, many Oregon businesses we’ve spoken to were spending thousands of dollars each year on costly online security awareness training portals, and it’s simply not needed. They took a quick glance at our security awareness training manual and PowerPoint Presentation (PPT) and made an immediate switch, saving a tremendous amount of money, and still getting top-notch training, many times better than the online portals. The same goes for our risk assessment documents; why spend thousands on costly software when our spreadsheet is easy-to-use, and often superior in terms of usability and feedback?

We’ll evaluate your internal controls, providing you with a formalized analysis and plan of actions for moving forward with PCI compliance.

3. SAQ Assistance: The PCI DSS standards allow the vast majority of merchants and service providers throughout North America – and the globe – to certify using any number of the actual Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ). And while “self-assessing” seems to be a rather straightforward process for North Carolina businesses, they often find themselves challenged by many of the questions. Enter Materdei Consulting, LLC, PCI DSS experts who specialize in assisting merchants and service providers with SAQ compliance for PCI.
While the vast majority of businesses are exempt from doing an actual Level 1 onsite assessment, the amount of work required for becoming compliant via the SAQ forms can be just as taxing, it really can, especially SAQ A-EP and SAQ-D, which are include testing provisions equal to that of an onsite assessment. From SAQ A to SAQ D, the Self-Assessment Questionnaires can be incredibly challenging, so turn to the experts today at Materdei Consulting, LLC by visiting pcipolicyportal.com.
4. PCI Security Awareness Training: Question: What’s the very best way for protecting organizational assets from data security breaches and other threat vectors? If you’ve answered security awareness training, then you’re correct! Remember that all the latest and greatest security products mean essentially nothing if you don’t have well-trained employees who can not only use the tools, but also be on the lookout for the ever-growing threats and issues in today’s cybersecurity world.
Your employees are your greatest asset and strength, so if you’re a business in the Charlotte, North Carolina metropolitan region and need PCI assistance, talk to Materdei Consulting, LLC today. Many companies we’ve spoken to throughout North Carolina were unfortunately spending thousands of dollars each year on costly, yet low-quality online security awareness training portals.
We gave them a copy of our security awareness training manual, along with the PowerPoint (PPT) presentation, and they were highly impressed. Not only was the content superior to the online training portals, it was included as part of the PCI DSS policy packets available for instant download at pcipolicyportal.com. As for licensing, there’s not limit on how many employees can use it, from 1 to 100,000!
5. PCI Risk Assessment Documents: Performing an annual risk assessment is a direct mandate for most merchants and service providers needing to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Not only that, it’s also a best practice that companies should be doing, but many are not. Think about it; how can you really run your business without knowing the relevant risks and operational threats that could potentially damage your business? In a world of growing cybersecurity challenges, performing a risk assessment is now more important than ever, so step up to the plate and do the right thing for you, your employees, and your customers.
6. Vendor Selection for Security Tools: Many of the actual mandates within the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) provisions require the use of various security tools, such as software and other devices. Because of this, you’ll need to start gathering information on the various vendors offering such solutions – but we’ve got a better idea – let the trusted experts at Materdei Consulting, LLC help in determining which companies offer the best products and solutions for your business. From FIM tools to WAF products, and more, we’ll put you in touch with the right providers.
