How does Data Security Manager work?

We’ll automatically enrol you onto our Data Security Manager (DSM) – a portal to help protect your business from fraud. 

When you log on you’ll be asked questions to work out the risk level of your business and the steps you need to take to meet the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). You’ll also get reminders to do tasks and to make sure you’re meeting the requirements each year. 

If you don’t meet the PCI DSS, we’ll move you from DSM onto our Proactive Security Service (PSS) instead, which will cost more each month. You can choose to opt out of PSS and remain on our DSM service.
