The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a security standard that was created and maintained by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). It defines requirements protecting credit and debit card information and related personal data.
PCI compliance applies to all entities storing, processing, or transmitting sensitive authentication data (SAD) or cardholder data (CHD). This includes merchants, acquirers, processors, service providers, and issuers. Payment card companies enforce PCI compliance, which is administered by the PCI SSC.
