A consortium of payment card providers maintains a set of standards used to protect cardholder data. The standard which defines the measures to be taken for compliance is titled the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).
In security terms, it means that our business adheres to the PCI DSS requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. In operational terms, it means that we take prescribed steps to make sure our customers' payment card data is being kept safe throughout every transaction, and our customers can have confidence that they're protected against the pain and cost of data breaches.
