What is PCI Compliance?

PCI compliance is determined by PCI Data Security Standards that set the operational and technical requirements for organizations accepting or processing payment transactions, and for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions. PCI was founded in 2006 by American Express, Discover, JCB International, MasterCard and Visa Inc. with two priorities in mind:

  • Helping merchants and financial institutions understand and implement standards for security policies, technologies and ongoing processes that protect their payment systems from breaches and theft of cardholder data.
  • Helping vendors understand and implement standards for creating secure payment solutions.

What it means for you

If you process credit cards on your site, or are thinking you will want to in the future, you are required to maintain payment security. The PCI DSS provides direction and guidance on technical and operational requirements for managing cardholder data.

Keep in mind, though, that compliance in PCI DSS doesn’t mean you are without vulnerabilities. Target, most notably, reported passing its compliance inspection month before its massive breach in 2013. It’s a reminder that what makes you secure today isn’t guaranteed to make you secure tomorrow. Security isn’t about passing a test; it’s about making security a part of everyday operations and being able to remediate issues that do arise quickly.
