What is PCI Compliance?

Date Updated: June 23, 2021

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a broad set of guidelines that govern how organizations should handle credit or debit card information.

It doesn’t matter how large your organization is — or whether it’s a for-profit business or charitable foundation. If you store, transmit, or process payment card data of any kind, you must become (and remain) PCI-compliant

Failure to do so not only increases your exposure to payment fraud, but it also increases the likelihood of paying hefty fines for every month that you’re not compliant.
