Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is a information security standard for organizations that accept credit cards from the major card brands; Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. The PCI Standard is mandated by the card brands and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. We are contractually obligated to comply with the PCI DSS. The standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud. Validation of compliance is performed annually.
