PCI Compliance Understanding
What does PCI DSS stand for?
You may be wondering what PCI DSS stands for. We understand that this terminology may be confusing or intimidating. We also know that the demand of running your business leaves little time to research acronyms like PCI DSS.
PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. It was developed by the major credit card companies as a guideline to help organizations that process, store or transmit card payments. The program helps prevent fraud, hacking, identity theft and various other security vulnerabilities and threats.
By complying with the PCI DSS, your business will avoid fines, audits and possibly losing the ability to process credit card payments altogether. At the same time, you are communicating to your valued customers that safeguarding their credit card and personal information is a top priority.
