Fibernet is a 100% pci compliant data center

In September of 2006, the leading payment brands, including American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and JCB International, founded the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council with the express purpose of establishing and promoting-on a global scale-the adoption of certain, consistent data security measures. These measures are outlined in a comprehensive set of requirements called the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS); such requirements include stringent mandates for security management, policies, procedures, network infrastructure, software design, and other security elements.


The specific requirements stated in the PCI DSS can be found on the official website of the PCI Security Standards Council as follows:

Build and Maintain a Secure Network
Requirement 1: Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data
Requirement 2: Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters
Protect Cardholder Data
Requirement 3: Protect stored cardholder data
Requirement 4: Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks
Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
Requirement 5: Use and regularly update anti-virus software
Requirement 6: Develop and maintain secure systems and applications
Implement Strong Access Control Measures
Requirement 7: Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
Requirement 8: Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access
Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
Requirement 10: Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data
Requirement 11: Regularly test security systems and processes
Maintain an Information Security Policy
Bio-Metric Scan
Requirement 12: Maintain a policy that addresses information security

The PCI DSS is foremost intended to help organizations that accept, process, and store sensitive payment account information protect that data from being compromised. The PCI Security Standards Council understands that the PCI DSS may be subject to modifications as new security risks arise and will enhance the listed protocol as needed, while continuing to promote PCI compliancy wherever it applies.
