The increase in consumer use of payment cards to make purchases has increased the need for businesses to ensure that they can accept payment card purchases. However, this changing appeal for the increasing use of payment card data has increased the appeal from criminal elements to exploit any potential vulnerabilities. “If you lose card data and you are not PCI DSS compliant, you could incur Card Scheme fines for the loss of this data. You may also be liable for the fraud losses incurred against these cards and the operational costs associated with replacing the accounts. Your customers may also not want to do further business with you” (Source: The UK cards association).

Frequently Asked Questions about Data Privacy Security
What is an incident response policy?
An Incident response plan or policy is a process you create before you experience a cyberattack. This is so that your team has a procedure to follow when you do experience a data breach. LRQA Nettitude follows the CREST Cybersecurity Incident Response process which is broken down into 3 phases: preparation, response, and follow up. Having a breach plan gives you the confidence to quickly nullify any threat to your data privacy security.
Why is data privacy security important?
Although it has always been important, the implications and need for higher security are coming into play now that technology is indispensable to everyday life. Using apps, browsing websites, and shopping online are all examples of how your data will be stored and managed online. For organisations today, the threat of cyber theft is a pertinent one. Having comprehensive data privacy plans in place can reduce and mitigate the risks of such events.
