    PCI Compliance

    PCI compliance is when businesses align their payment processing practices to the PCI requirements for securely processing, storing, and transmitting credit card data.

    What Is PCI Compliance?

    The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard sets requirements for merchants and other businesses around the processing, storing, and transmitting of consumers’ credit card information. It’s an independent group comprising leaders from the major credit card companies in the U.S.

    PCI compliance is when businesses align their practices with these requirements and use PCI’s tools to develop the right security systems within their payment processes. PCI compliance includes 12 major requirements, including maintaining firewalls, protecting passwords, encrypting transmitted data, always updating software, restricting data access, using antivirus software, and more.

    With data breaches increasingly occurring worldwide, consumers are rightfully wary of handing over their sensitive data. Businesses that adopt PCI compliance practices are not only well-positioned to avoid costly breaches but also to win business and loyalty from hesitant consumers.
