PCI-DSS (PAYMENT CARD INDUSTRY DATA SECURITY STANDARD)
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is a global information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC). The purpose of the standard is to reduce credit card fraud. This is achieved through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organizations which process, store or transmit cardholder information.
