What is PCI-DSS Compliance?
PCI DSS is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which is a global security standard set by the PCI Security Standards Council. PCI compliance is mandatory and applies to every business which stores, processes or transmits cardholder details. It ensures a secure payment environment is maintained. From the smallest ecommerce stores to the world’s largest corporations, compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is essential.
Why is PCI compliance so important?
If a business does meet PCI compliance regulations, it faces significant threats to its reputation, its brand and to its profits from any compromise in the security of your information systems. Furthermore, if merchants are not compliant, they are liable to incur substantial fines and could potentially find themselves being permanently banned from further card processing.
