What is PCI-DSS Certification?
The PCI DSS was created in the year 2004 by four major credit-card companies: Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
The full form of PCI DSS is Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) which was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security which facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. PCI DSS provides a baseline of technical and operational requirements designed to protect cardholder data.
PCI DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data. The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a widely accepted set of policies and procedures intended to optimise the security of credit, debit and cash card transactions and protect cardholders against misuse of their personal information.
