What does PCI DSS stand for?

 We understand that this terminology may be confusing or intimidating. We also know that the demand for 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 you to guard and prevent fraud, hacking, identity theft and various other security vulnerabilities and threats. Some useful payment protection tips can be reviewed on the official PCI site.

By complying with the PCI DSS, your business may avoid breaches, fines, audits and possibly losing the ability to process credit card payments altogether. At the same time, you are communicating with your valued customers that safeguarding their credit card and personal information is a top priority.

Card Systems is dedicated to helping you protect yourself and your customers.   As one of our valued merchants, you are automatically enrolled in the PCI Security Program. The purpose of this program is to help you safeguard and protect your customer’s valuable data by following the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance guidelines.  This program is required for all merchants that process credit card payments and by being complaint makes you more trustworthy.
