PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
The information security of cardholders has become a real concern worldwide, both for banks that issue payment cards as for retailers who accept them and, of course, for customers who use them.
In many countries, there have been cases in which offenders have access to computer systems, steal card information and use this information to commit fraud. In most cases, these systems have been operated by merchants that accept payment cards or vendors that process payments on your behalf.
PCI (Payment Card Industry) is a security standard data created by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International which aims to define protective measures for infrastructure systems involved in the treatment, processing or information storage means of payment. The requirements of this standard are known as PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
