The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a proprietary information security standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards from the major card brands such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
The PCI Standard is mandated by the card brands and run by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure. PCI DSS offers a framework for handling credit card data security breaches, however the PCI Security Standards Council is fractured and complex. Each member imposes its own standards and issues severe penalties when its conditions are not met. The threat of such breaches looms large, as do the regulatory burdens put in place to prevent them.
