Safeguard your customers’ information in the age of e-commerce
With the popularity of online shopping and banking services, credit card transactions are growing at a tremendous rate. Consequently, the threat of credit fraud is also on the rise. To create an additional level of protection for card issuers and ensure that merchants meet minimum levels of security when they store, process and transmit data obtained from the cardholder, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was created for organisations handling payment services containing cardholder information.
About Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
The global PCI standards define specific requirements for the different areas in processing card payments which are set and agreed with among stakeholders such as banks, merchants and payment services providers. PCI compliance is required for all merchants that store, transmit or process payment card information. Knowledge of and compliance with data security standards can bring major benefits to your business, while failure to comply can have serious and long-term negative consequences.
