Security Services for Retail – PCI DSS Compliance
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements for enhancing payment account data security. These standards were developed by the PCI Security Standards Council to facilitate industry wide adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis.It applies to all businesses (not just retailers) that take credit and debit cards, regardless of size or transaction volume. Any business involved in the storage, processing and/or transmission of payment card numbers must comply. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an in store transaction or online, on a mobile device or via a desktop. Requirements for certification vary depending on the number of transactions an entity processes and the way they are processed.
