About PCI Compliance
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a proprietary information security standard for organizations that handle cardholder information, and is mandated by the major credit card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, etc.), and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. PCI standards were created to increase controls around cardholder data to decrease credit card fraud, and are applied to any organization that handles cardholder information. The PCI Data Security Standard is a multilayered security standard and includes requirements for security management, procedures, internal policies, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures.
The PCI Security Standard includes 12 requirements for compliance, grouped into six control objectives. Each level of PCI compliance must:
- Build and maintain a secure network
- Protect cardholder data
- Maintain a vulnerability management program
- Implement strong access control measures
- Regularly monitor and test networks
- Maintain an information security policy
