What is PCI DSS Compliance?

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS is a set of parameters established by the card industry that is designed to ensure that a secure working environment exists for all merchants that process, store or transmit credit, debit and pre-card information.

All merchants that accept payment cards must follow these requirements to be considered compliant. To receive your PCI Compliance Certification, merchants must complete an annual Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and possibly an external quarterly scan.
