PCI DSS Requirements
Merchants, banks, payment service providers, and other parties that play a role in processing credit and debit card payments must protect the privacy of account data—both to meet core business goals and to fulfil obligations under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The standard defines strict compliance requirements for the processing, storage, and transmission of account data. PCI DSS compliance must be validated periodically, and failure to comply can result in fines or even the termination of the ability to process card payments.
Thales eSecurity can help organizations working with cardholder data to comply with several aspects of PCI DSS compliance, including those relating to data encryption, access control, authentication, monitoring and auditing.
