PCI Compliance

PCI Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are a set of mandated guidelines that provide merchants with rules for physical, application, and network security, as well as security policy management, which is required of all merchants.

In 2004, the PCI Council was formed by the five major card brands: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Japan Card. Their aim was to establish a standard set of guidelines around the handling of cardholder data by merchants. To demonstrate compliance with these guidelines, merchants are required to submit an attestation of compliance annually.
