What is PCIDSS?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a single set of worldwide requirements, for consumer data protection across the entire industry. PCI DSS is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for all aspects of security.

Compliance with the PCI Standard is not optional. All entities (merchants, service providers, issuers) that process, store or transmit cardholder data are required to comply with PCI DSS. The Payment Card Industry Security Standard Council (PCI SSC) is responsible for the continuing evolution of the standards, while the payment brands enforce PCI compliance.

PCI requirements are not black and white. Each requirement has an intent that must be clearly understood and implemented correctly. Understanding the intent of the requirements and putting appropriate controls in place is key and can be both complex and costly.
