What is PCI DSS Compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.

There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant:

  1. Maintain a Secure Network
  2. Protect Cardholder Data
  3. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
