About PCI DSS
PCI DSS was created by the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council (Visa, MasterCard and other leading schemes) to develop a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security and to facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis. PCI DSS is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. The core of PCI DSS is a group of principles and accompanying requirements, around which specific elements of the DSS are organised. These are:

  • Build and maintain a Secure Network
  • Protect Cardholder data
  • Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
  • Implement strong Access Control Measures
  • Regularly monitor and Test Networks
  • Maintain an Information Security Policy
