About PCI

The Data Security Standard for the Payment Card Industry (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) or PCI DSS was developed by a committee made up of the most important card companies (debit and credit), a committee called PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council) as a guide that helps organizations that process, store and/or transmit cardholder data (or cardholders), to secure said data, in order to avoid fraud involving debit and payment cards. credit.

Companies that process, store or transmit card data must comply with the standard or risk losing their permissions to process credit and debit cards (Loss of franchises), face rigorous audits or pay fines. This validation is performed by authorized Qualified Security Assessor auditors (QSAs).
