PCI-DSS Compliance

The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is a global forum that brings together payments industry stakeholders to develop and drive adoption of data security standards and resources for safe payments worldwide.
PCI DSS is a cybersecurity standard backed by all the major credit card and payment processing companies that aims to keep credit and debit card numbers safe. PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
Companies can demonstrate that they’ve implemented the standard by meeting the reporting requirements laid out by the standard; those organizations that fail to meet the requirements, or who are found to be in violation of the standard, may be fined.

According to the PCI Security Standards Council, there are three steps for PCI DSS compliance:


Identify and inventory all assets and processes that handle cardholder data, and analyze them for vulnerabilities that could expose cardholder data.


Remediate vulnerabilities and secure business processes. Eliminate any unnecessary storage of cardholder data.


Report compliance status to the appropriate parties, such as acquirers, payment brands, or the PCI Security Standards Council.

These steps are based on the 12 requirements of the PCI DSS, which cover areas such as network security, access control, encryption, monitoring, testing, and policies. Depending on the size and complexity of your organization, you may need to complete a self-assessment questionnaire or undergo an external audit by a qualified security assessor (QSA) or an approved scanning vendor (ASV) to demonstrate compliance.
