The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) provides comprehensive requirements for enhancing account data security for all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information.
The payment brands (American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.) have joined together to create the Payment Card Industry Security Council and further outlined Data Security Standards.
The PCI Council has mandated that all merchants who store, transmit or process cardholder information must maintain compliance with the PCI DSS.
We understand the risks and financial costs that a compromise can pose to your business. In support of this important mandate, all merchants are required to validate their PCI DSS compliance status with us. We have simplified the process, however, making it as convenient as possible for you.
