Payment Card Industry (PCI)

Credit Card Merchant Services information is available for departments/areas that intend to establish and/or modify an existing process which involves credit card data. To do so, departments must make sure their process is PCI compliant and follow the appropriate steps to ensure the new process is established successfully.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a framework of 12 requirements, both technical and operational, created by the credit card brands in an effort to protect cardholder data and processes, and ultimately reduce the risk of credit card fraud and data breaches.

The standards apply to all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data – with guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions. PCI DSS is managed by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and is enforced by the founding members of the council, American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc.

PCI DSS has 12 requirements grouped into 6 subject areas:
