PCI compliance

Payment card industry compliance alludes to the specialized and operational norms that organizations follow to secure and protect credit card information provided by cardholders during any transaction. PCI compliance for consistence has been developed by the PCI Security Standards Council.


The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) applies to organisations of any size that acknowledge credit card payments.

An organization that is in the process of accepting card payment, storing data, processing them and transmitting these data must host this data securely with a  PCI compliant facilitating supplier. Additionally, you have to guarantee that the information kept by these suppliers are secured.
