The Payment Card Industry (PCI) established the Data Security Standard (DSS) in order to reduce the risk organizations and consumers face in relation to credit card fraud, hacking and various other security issues. A company processing, storing or transmitting credit card numbers must be PCI DSS compliant or it risks losing the ability to process credit card payments. The penalties and sanctions for non-compliance are severe.
The requirements for data security demanded by PCI are compatible with many other security best practices, but they impose significant hurdles to security teams.
