Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. PCI-DSS provides a baseline of technical and operational requirements designed to protect account data. PCI-DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers. PCI-DSS also applies to all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD).
