From the world’s largest corporations to small Internet stores, compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is vital for all merchants who accept credit cards, online or offline, because nothing is more important than keeping your customer’s payment card data secure.
The size of your business will determine the specific compliance requirements that must be met. Note that enforcement of merchant compliance is managed by the individual payment brands and not by the Council – the same is true for non-compliance penalties.
The Council is here to help merchants through maintaining and enhancing the PCI Security Standards, providing education and training about protecting payment card data with the PCI Security Standards, and by serving as a forum for engaging with the industry on developing these standards.
