The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an Information Security Standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards from major card schemes. PCI DSS is a standard that all organizations and online retailers must follow while storing, processing, and transmitting their customer’s credit card data. PCI DSS compliance is one of the most stringent and most coveted security standards in the industry today. With 6 goals, 12 requirements, and over 300 sub-requirements, PCI compliance helps businesses to reduce and minimize the risk of their payment systems getting breached and theft of cardholder data.
