Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, or PCI DSS, is a voluntary cybersecurity certification for companies that accept credit card payments.

The standard, first issued in 2004 jointly by Visa, MasterCard, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, and American Express, outlines best practices for information security and authentication. Certification further requires that financial account and other data be hosted on sytems or providers that are themselves PCI-compliant.
