The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council is a global forum that develops, maintains and manages the PCI Security Standards, which include the Data Security Standard (DSS), Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), and PIN Transaction Security (PTS) Requirements.
The PCI Security Standards Council leads a global cross-industry effort to increase payment security by providing flexible, industry-driven and effective payment data security standards and programs.
Our standards cover everything from the point of entry of card data into a system, to how the data is processed through secure payment applications. We seek to protect and educate industry players such as merchants, processors, financial institutions and any other organizations around the world that store, process and transmit cardholder data. The Council works to educate stakeholders about the PCI Security Standards, operates programs to train and qualify security professionals in assessing and achieving compliance with PCI Security Standards, and promotes awareness of the need for payment data security to the public.
