Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance

What is PCI?

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) was formed in 2004 to establish a standard set of guidelines around the handling of cardholder data by merchants. The PCI Data Security Standards (DSS) details security requirements for members, merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data.

How Does PCI Affect My Company?

As a merchant accepting credit and debit card payments, you must safeguard customer card data by becoming compliant (PCI DSS). This means that the processes and applications by which your business handles credit and debit card data must abide by the standards set forth by the PCI Security Standards Council. In addition, noncompliance fees may be charged as a result of not having a certificate of compliance on file.
