What is PCI Compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of 12 requirements intended to prevent consumer data theft and online fraud and was jointly developed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.

PCI Compliance with the standard is mandatory for any organization that stores, transmits or processes credit card transactions.
