Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance is a set of security standards that are designed to ensure that businesses that accept credit and debit card payments are properly protecting the sensitive information of their customers. The PCI DSS was developed by major credit card companies, including Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, to provide a standardized framework for securing payment card data.
The PCI DSS consists of 12 requirements that businesses must comply with in order to be considered PCI compliant. These requirements cover a range of security controls, including the implementation of firewalls, encryption, access controls, and regular security testing and monitoring. Businesses that accept credit and debit card payments must comply with the PCI DSS in order to avoid potential fines and other legal consequences for failing to properly protect payment card data.
