Security for international card-based payment transactions
The PCIDSS is a set of rules developed by the international payment systems Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB International (united in the PCI Security Standards Council) to ensure the security of payments with their payment cards.
Merchants who accept payments with such cards and service providers who support them must comply with PCIDSS regulations. The regulations cover best practices in IT security:
Access and access controls
Monitoring, logging and regular network checks
Information security management, processes and guidelines
So that your customers have confidence in you
Compliance with the requirements of PCIDSS makes it considerably more difficult for attackers to obtain payment data. This ensures a secure payment system and maintains customer confidence.
By complying with PCIDSS, companies are also already implementing measures to facilitate compliance with further compliance requirements such as the requirements of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation or the IT Security Act, banking supervisory requirements for IT (BAIT) or requirements from international standards such as ISO/IEC 27001.
