Merchant Compliance Management and Policy Management
Merchant Compliance Management
SecureGRC merchant compliance management helps banks and financial institutes to ensure their
merchants comply with the regulations applicable to their business.
What is Merchant Management?
According to VISA,
Acquirers are responsible for ensuring that all of their merchants comply with the PCI Data Security
Standard (DSS) requirements
And according to MasterCard,
MasterCard fundamentally views our member Acquirers as owning the acquiring payment channel.
Given this perspective, MasterCard works to administer the SDP Program through our Acquirers,
working with merchants to further secure the transaction infrastructure. Please note that acquirers
themselves do not need to go through the SDP compliance process but they must manage the SDP
process for their merchants.
Merchant Management is the process that enables card acquirers to ensure that their merchants are
compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard and thereby satisfy the demands of the various card
brands. SecureGRC merchant management enables organizations (banks, acquirers, service providers
etc.) to manage the compliance of their merchants with the PCI DSS. Merchant management automates
many of the manual tasks associated with the merchant compliance process. When organizations are
dealing with thousands of merchants, the process of managing compliance could consume an enormous
amount of resources, time and money. CMM enables organizations to reduce all of these by providing a
single interface to all compliance processes through a universally accessible web based interface.
