Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
What is PCI DSS?
PCI DSS requirements are set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), founded and enforced by Payment Brand (through your acquiring bank/s). Payment Card Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the global data security standard that any business of any size must adhere to in order to accept payment by card and either store, process, and/or transmit cardholder data.
It contains common sense yet rigorous controls that mirror best security practices. PCI DSS applies to the protection of cardholder data’ (CD), centred around the Primary Account Number (PAN).
Who should comply and how
The PCI DSS applies to all entities that store, process, and/ or transmit cardholder data. That means both merchants and service providers to merchants (IT, data centre, call centre, storage, cloud providers, etc). It covers technical and operational system components included in, or connected to, the cardholder data handled.
If you accept, store, transmit and / or process payment cards, PCI DSS applies to you
