What is PCI DSS?


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).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is PCI-DSS?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of policies, procedures, and standards aimed at securing transactions involving debit, credit, and cash cards, thereby protecting the information of the cardholders. PCI-DSS was formed by Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express in 2004.

What is PCI-DSS compliance?

PCI-DSS compliance requires all vendors who process, store, or transmit information related to credit, debit, or cash cards to adhere to the PCI-DSS standard in order to protect this information. PCI-DSS compliance was launched in 2006 to manage and improve account security. The goal of the compliance is to ensure a secure environment through payment applications that adhere to the regulations and do not store prohibited information.

Who must comply with PCI-DSS?

Any company that processes, stores, or transmits information related to debit, credit, or cash cards needs to comply with PCI-DSS. The size of the company and the size and volume of the transactions do not affect the need for compliance.

What happens if a business is not PCI-DSS compliant?

Businesses that deal with monetary transactions but fail to comply with the PCI-DSS standard can face penalties ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 depending on other finer details. Non-compliance can also result in businesses losing the right to support payment applications. It can also negatively affect your credibility and trust factor and deter customers from engaging with your business.

There are 12 requirements of PCI-DSS. They are: 1) Instal and maintain a firewall; 2) Not using default passwords; 3) Protect cardholders’ information; 4) Encrypt any information that is transmitted; 5) Keep antivirus programs updated; 6) Maintain security of all systems and applications; 7) Restrict access to sensitive information; 8) Unique ID to for individual accesses; 9) Restrict physical access to cardholders’ information; 10) Monitor all accesses to sensitive information; 11) Test security systems regularly; 12) Strong information security policy.
