Credit Card Compliance Regulations Mandated by the Payment Card Industry Standards Council Accounting and Financial Services
What is PCI-DSS? PCI-DSS is an acronym for the Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard PCI DSS is the global data security standard that any business of any size must adhere to in order to accept payment cards, and to store, process, and/or transmit cardholder data.
About the Council The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, or PCI SSC – often termed simply “the Council” – is an open global forum, launched in 2006, that develops, maintains and manages the PCI Security Standards, which include the Data Security Standard (DSS), Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA- DSS), and PIN Transaction Security (PTS) Requirements. The Council’s five founding global payment brands -- American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard, and Visa Inc. The Council does NOT validate or enforce any organization’s compliance with its PCI Security Standards, nor does it impose penalties for non-compliance. These areas are governed by the payment brands and their partners.
