Knowledge Base / What is PCI Compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established in 2006 by the major card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International). All businesses that process, store, or transmit payment card data are required to implement the standard to prevent cardholder data theft. Your card-handling practices and processing environment determine which requirements of the PCI DSS apply to your business.
