Site Data Protection for Acquirers

Acquirers are responsible for building a PCI compliance program to manage their merchant compliance. They are also tasked with educating merchants and evangelizing the PCI DSS. We offer the PCI 360 Education Program as a tool to help our Acquiring banks reach their merchants and broaden the adoption of the PCI Security Standards.

Engage your Merchants

  • Actively engage your merchants and help them to determine their merchant level based on the MasterCard transaction volume from the most recent 52 week period
  • Set deadlines for your merchants to submit PCI validation requirements and supply them with information on where to send their completed documentation
  • Submit a completed SDP Acquirer Submission and Compliance Status Form to sdp@mastercard.com quarterly, reporting PCI compliance progress for L1, L2 and L3 merchants
  • MasterCard does not require that Level 4 merchants validate PCI compliance. Acquirers may choose to track Level 4 PCI compliance progress and may report Level 4 merchants to MasterCard.

The PCI 360 Education Program (PCI 360)

PCI 360 is a complimentary initiative offered by MasterCard to its Acquiring Bank Members to provide assistance in increasing the adoption of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The intent of this offering is to provide a holistic, interactive and informative environment for merchants to increase their understanding of PCI DSS through hands on sessions with Industry and Security Experts.

MasterCard delivers the PCI 360 program through various mediums - including onsite seminars, webconference and via our PCI 360 Webinar Series.
