The PCI DSS is a set of comprehensive standards designed to protect and secure cardholder data.
The standards are governed by an independent organisation known as the PCI Security Standards Council, which is made up of representatives from the world’s major credit card companies, such as Visa and Mastercard, and leading information security experts.
The PCI DSS:
- Reduces the risk of credit card fraud.
- Helps you to avoid fines, penalties and costs related to credit card security breaches and non-compliance.
- Increases consumer confidence in credit card payments.
- Reduces your business’ exposure to potential lost revenue as a result of fraud.
