What is PCI compliance?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security rules created to protect sensitive cardholder data online. The PCI DSS is managed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an organization that was created by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. Requirements for PCI range from implementing data encryption and using firewalls to maintaining access controls and conducting regular maintenance checks.
