What is PCI DSS


The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations handling credit card information from major credit card companies, such as: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.


The standard was created to increase security around cardholder data and is a requirement for any organization wishing to process or store credit card information.


Compliance assessments for large organizations must be performed annually by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) or by a firm specific Internal Security Assessor (ISA). Smaller organizations require a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) annually.
