Understanding and becoming PCI compliant can be a daunting task

With the massive amount of information on an ever-evolving subject, understanding and becoming PCI compliant can be a daunting task. The process of becoming PCI compliant following the PCI SSC recommended process involves over 160 steps to a merchant's security system and can easily be misinterpreted. The process is also costly, as Gartner estimated that large merchants will spend $568,000 on PCI compliance. Though the process can be arduous and time consuming, the benefit of ensuring compliance and ultimately protection of valuable customers, makes it worth all the work.
