What is PCI Compliance?
PCI compliance is not a single event, but an ongoing process. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established by the major card brands. All businesses that process, store, or transmit payment card data are required to implement the standard to prevent cardholder data theft.
As a Merchant or Service Provider, you are responsible for ensuring that you achieve and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). The DSS defines requirements for the protection of consumers’ payment card information while stored, in transit or during processing. Organizations that fail to comply with the PCI DSS potentially face significant fines, loss of customer goodwill, and may lose the ability to accept credit cards for payment.
