At Forte, in an effort to offer you the most comprehensive service and to help you protect your business and customers from the possibility of data breach. We have partnered with Aperia solutions to provide a simple path for merchant PCI compliance.

The fee for the program includes online instruction and assistance with registration and completion of the PCI online questionnaire (which must be validated yearly), individualized response for any questions you have in completing the questionnaire, notification of PCI compliant status and ongoing monthly vulnerability scans of your systems.Merchants who have not validated PCI compliance will be charged a PCI Non-Compliance fee of $29.99 per month until a PCI compliant status is achieved.
