What is PCI-DSS Compliance?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of
security requirements endorsed by the five most globally influential
payment brands: Visa, Mastercard, JCB, Discover and American
It is a mandatory annual requirement for any business (merchant or
service provider) which stores, processes or transmits payment card
data, to attest their compliance with the standard. PCI DSS attestation
demonstrates that your business uses and protects the confidential
payment data of your customers in a safe and secure way, minimising
risks associated with payment card fraud.
Why is PCI DSS compliance important?
Payment card security ranks as one of the most important security
concerns for consumers and businesses that accept all types of card
payment transactions, either in person (card present) or online and over
the telephone (card-not-present).
With the increasing importance of the digital economy and online
businesses, it’s crucial to have the right security controls in place to
ensure customer payment information is secure. This is even more
important, with the introduction of stricter data protection laws, such as
GDPR. This increased regulatory scrutiny should focus organisations’
attention even more on PCI DSS compliance.
