PCI DSS 'Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard' applies to UK businesses that accept credit card payments. The regulation is in place to ensure that cardholders data is hosted securely with a PCI compliant provider. Banks and Merchants are fining businesses that do not meet the payment standard.
Many business owners are not aware of PCI Compliancy and what it means. Instead, they continue with their daily business, processing card payments insecurely and facing fines from their bank or merchant provider. For a business to become PCI DSS compliant, a Level-1 MOTO payment solution must be integrated to take payments in an encrypted environment.
Telecoms World can provide secure a PCI Compliant gateway for processing payments over the telephone. There are many solutions for inbound and outbound calls using the telephone keypad (DTMF Keys) a website link sent via SMS or email, which allows funds to be transferred without the caller disclosing card details, or the information becoming visible to the call agent.
Avoid banking charges with the latest PCI Compliance gateway for MOTO payments. Organisations commonly use a PDQ machine to take payments from face-to-face clients, and the transaction is taken using the client's card information and the payment value. If payment is made over the telephone using this method, then the payment is not PCI compliant, and fines could be incurred. Our Secure Payment Gateway ensures that the transaction is safe, encrypted and prevents any non-compliance charges to the business.
Avoid a monthly non-compliance fee and additional PCI DSS service fees when you become certified and PCI compliant for payment made over the telephone.

Card fraud and payment card breaches are an ongoing battle for the banks, so PCI compliance is a top priority for merchants and businesses that process electronic payments. There are approximately 288 PCI DSS controls that companies need to comply with to protect data at rest and data in transit. The consequences of not being PCI compliant could cost up to £10,000, which banks and credit card institutions levy.
There are two main ways that merchants are asked to demonstrate their compliance with PCI: Merchants may either indicate compliance by working through a self-reporting checklist on their own, or they may be required to undergo a full audit by a certified third-party security expert known as a Qualified Security Assessor.
Introducing Telecoms World Compliant Cloud creates a secure environment over the phone where your clients can disclose their bank details without their data ever becoming visible to an operator, or passed through company hardware. By simply transferring a caller to the Compliant Cloud, the caller is passed back to the operator through a secure connection. When the caller taps in their details, the data is being encrypted with only the notification of completion being made visible to the operator. Once the transaction is complete, the funds are sent directly to your account without ever passing through your company’s hardware or being visible to staff.
If you decide to undergo a full audit by a certified third-party security expert, or ‘Qualified Security Assessor’, you may receive a detailed report on compliance and/or attestation of compliance from the assessor.
There are 4 levels of PCI compliance based on each merchant’s card transaction volume. Level 1 is classed as the highest level of compliance, for those who process over 6 million card transactions annually through all channels (card present, card not present and eCommerce).
Although you do not need any specific security systems in place, you must ensure that you are proactive in maintaining a decent security level across your business. This includes regular testing of your security measures such as anti-virus software and firewalls.
The best way to stay compliant is to perform regular system audits. Ensure that passwords are regularly updated, policies are kept up to date, and employee training is maintained.
