PCI DSS Compliance
PCI compliance was created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, and is comprised of American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc. They have recently updated their global PCI compliance policies to protect cardholder data. As a result of increased credit card fraud, the Security Standards Council has modernized the PCI compliance standards in an effort to obstruct and prevent further theft of personal information, hence PCI DSS. The new PCI compliance requirements are strictly enforced by the payment card brands to all merchants who transmit, store, or process credit card information. This is a simple process to become compliant, and we can walk you step by step through this process all the way to receiving your certificate of compliance.
