Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

What is PCI DSS?

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is a the global security standard that businesses of any size must adhere to to accept payment by card and either store/ process and/or transmit cardholder data. Set out by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), the PCI DSS requirements are founded and enforced by Payment Brand (through your acquiring bank/s). 

Designed to be both practical and comprehensive, PCI DSS encompasses rigourous controls aligned to security best practices. It focuses on safeguarding cardholder’s data (CD) centred around Primary Account Number (PAN), which is the key identitfier for payment card transactions. 

Who Should Comply ?

The PCI DSS applies to all entities that store, process, and/ or transmit cardholder data, which includes both merchants and service providers to merchants (IT, data centre, call centre, storage, cloud providers, etc). 

It is about making PCI compliance part of your business, not a once-a-year, study-for the test thing

How to Comply?

PCI DSS covers technical and operational system components included in, or connected to, the cardholder data handled. The reporting requirements differ based on the business (service providers or merchants), the number of cards processed annually, and how payments are taken (in-person, phone, mail, fax or e-commerce).
