PCI Compliance for Small Business

Colume simplifies Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance and helps protect your information and customers—so you can focus on growing your business.
Customer loyalty is built on trust. It takes years to develop those relationships—but they can be destroyed in an instant if your business experiences a data breach.
Protecting the brand you’ve work so hard to build starts with securing your company’s sensitive data. While you may think your size keeps you safe, small businesses are a big target for cybercrime. More than 70 percent of cyber-attacks occur at businesses with fewer than 100 employees – and 80 percent of small businesses that experience a breach go out of businesses within 18 months.
Colume can help you avoid the risk of a devastating data breach with our PCI Compliance services. Our experts will translate the technical jargon and simplify data security practices, saving you time and effort. We can help you navigate the required compliance processes—and identify any other security vulnerabilities your business might face.
Our tools and services are designed to help you quickly and easily understand how to manage private information. Plus, our expert advisors – available via phone, email, and online chat – help you avoid fines and increased fees by taking the guesswork out of PCI Compliance.

PCI Concierge

Premium Support to help you get back to business.

At Colume we know owning a business comes with certain challenges. We believe that PCI compliance should not be one of them. Whether it’s your first time validating or time for your annual renewal, Colume’s PCI Concierge provides you with a live compliance support expert who will walk you through the validation process and provide you with ongoing monitoring of your account to ensure you maintain compliance throughout the year. PCI Concierge includes:
  • Dedicated support to help determine your merchant type and processing method.
  • A helping hand to walk you through the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) from start to finish.
  • Advice on external vulnerability scanning and remediation tools.
  • Guidance on additional tools available to you within Colume PCI Manager.
Simplify Security
Colume’s cloud-based tool, Colume™ PCI Manager, is designed with your busy schedule in mind. It simplifies compliance, asking easy-to-understand questions targeted to your business type. Our intelligent PCI Wizard then maps your answers to the (PCI DSS) compliance forms, guiding you through the entire process from your desktop computer.
PCI Manager also helps you identify what issues need to be addressed to become compliant, find the right solutions and check-off tasks once they are complete. Plus, it can help you implement additional best practices that give your business an extra layer of security.

Maximize Value
PCI Manager has more integrated security tools than any other offering on the market. Its toolkit includes 13 different security solutions designed specifically to meet the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses. By packaging these products together, Colume can offer these high-value tools to you at a low cost. Our unique set of security capabilities could cost up to seven times more if purchased independently—and some of our small merchant services can’t be found anywhere else.
Reduce Risk
Completing a passing Self-Assessment Questionnaire only confirms that you’ve met the bare minimum of security compliance. This will keep you safe from increased fees and fines, but there are many other threats that put your business at risk. PCI Manager offers security vulnerability scanning and management, malware monitoring, merchant education and more to help you cover your bases all year long.
Save Time
Small business owners don’t work from 9 to 5. You’re always on—which is why our experts are always available. Our multi-lingual support teams are ready 24/7 to answer any questions you might have. If there’s a problem you need to resolve, our experts will outline the tasks you need to complete—they can also offer ongoing assistance with maintaining compliance, and share educational resources, reusable templates and additional integrated solutions that will cut down the amount of time you have to spend thinking about compliance and data security.
Maintain Compliance
Once the compliance process is complete, PCI Manager will report your compliance status back to your bank or program sponsor automatically. You can view and download milestone progress reports and download your PCI Attestation of Compliance online. Plus, you can display the Colume® seal on your website to let your visitors know that their personal data is safe with you.
When it’s time to renew next year, PCI Manager Express Renewal will help you make updates and complete your certification in a fraction of the time—sometimes as little as 10 minutes.
