PCI PTS are technical and operational requirements set to protect cardholder data. The standards apply to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is responsible for managing the security standards, while compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is enforced by the payment networks – American Express, Discover, JCB International, MasterCard and Visa. PCI DSS Compliance is the merchant's responsibility. Navigate through the following PIC DSS weblinks for additional information.
MasterCard and Visa, have their own payment card security standard programs for merchant assistance. Navigate through their weblinks for additional information.
