Optimal security protection with PCI DSS Compliance

What is PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established to reassure and protect consumers and their data. Every business is required to follow the PCI DSS set of security standards for credit card transactions.
PCI DSS is maintained by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), a group created in 2004 by the five major credit card companies: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, JCB International, and American Express.
What does PCI DSS compliance involve?
- Collecting and transmitting sensitive credit card data securely
- Storing secure data using encryption, ongoing monitoring, and security testing
- Annual security validation through vulnerability scanning, audits, etc.
