What is PCI Compliance?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes. The PCI Standard is mandated by the card brands and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) applies to both large and small businesses that accept credit card payments in any format. Whether you are swiping a card or entering credit card information online, PCI helps you do so safely. We partner with PCI to help companies store, process, and submit the card holder's personal information via a secure PCI hosting provider. Since this is the highest level of security in the industry, you can rest assured that both you and your clients are safe when processing payments.
