PCI DSS (Securing Cardholder Data)

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), is a Security Standard in payments industry which must be complied with.

The program is the result of the efforts from Card Schemes VISA, Mastercard, Discover, JCB & American Express to unify their own security programs, creating as a result what today is known as PCI DSS, governed by the «PCI Security Standards Council» (PCI SSC).
