PCI (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
PCI comprises a set of policies and procedures aimed to protect personal cardholder information from misuse. This standard was developed by the PCI Security Standards Council, comprising the six major credit card companies, American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard and Visa. This standard applies to merchants as well as service providers that provide services for merchants that involve processing, storing and/or transmitting cardholder data, and was established as a minimum set of standards that must be met by organizations that accept, process and/or transmit credit card data.
Compliance can be a complex and costly exercise. PCI controls include building and maintaining a security network, protecting cardholder data, maintaining a vulnerability management program, implementing strong access control measures, regularly monitor and test networks, and maintaining an information security policy.
