PCI Compliance: A Brief Introduction
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements from the card associations designed to ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
The five major card brands established the Payment Card Industry Council to oversee PCI DSS and to promote the security of the credit and debit card data being presented into the payment systems.
Although all business owners are required to comply with PCI DSS, validation is not required in all cases. If a breach occurs, all fines and penalties may apply.
