What is PCI Compliance?
PCI stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and is a shorthand for PCI DSS. It's a requirement for information security that all companies that accept credit cards must follow.
PCI is there to help keep you safe as well as to safeguard the information of your customers. Maintaining PCI compliance helps to protect your company from costly fraudulent transactions and data breaches.
If your business accepts card payments via a payment gateway for your online transactions, you will need to make sure you are PCI compliant.
When accepting, transmitting, processing, and storing credit card data, businesses are required to adhere to a set of 12 security standards known as PCI compliance, or payment card industry compliance. PCI compliance demands that small businesses manage firewalls, maintain antivirus software, assign unique IDs to each employee with computer access, and encrypt cardholder data.
