What is PCI Compliance?
The PCI (Payment Card Industry) Security Standards Council is an industry-led standards organization, founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. PCI provides a Data Security Standard (DSS) that details comprehensive security requirements for merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data. The PCI DSS includes requirements for networks, software, policies, procedures and other security measures and practices.
