Payment Card Industry- Data Security Standard

The Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI – DSS) is a compliance standard that defines data security requirements relating to the processing, storage or transmission of cardholder data. It is applicable to all entities that process, store or transmit cardholder data.

The PCI DSS was founded in December 2004 by 5 major card brands – American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, Master Card and Visa Inc. In 2006, the card brands formed the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an independent council established to maintain and update the PCI standards.

The standard was agreed by the major card brands as a common, consistent and secure minimum level of protection to be applied by all organizations that process, store or transmit cardholder data to safeguard payment card data and payment card customers. PCI DSS applies to card payments accepted in person, over the phone or online.
