Concerns about the safety of payment card information have driven the payment card industry to adopt strict standards for securing payment card data, protecting cardholder information and the maintaining the integrity of credit and debit card transactions. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) dictates the steps that organizations that accept, store or process payment card information must take to secure customer data. It also creates a significant burden for documenting compliance.
Failure to prove compliance can carry severe penalties, including fines, increased transaction fees or losing the right to access a payment card network’s resources at any level. The PCI DSS covers all aspects of data security, including hosts, applications and networks.
