PCI stands for the Payment Card Industry, a group of top credit card companies, such as Visa, Mastercard, and Discover, who established a set of rules for companies dealing with credit card transactions. The standards measure how well a company protects your financial information. Should a business reach these standards, the PCI deems them as reputable or “compliant with these standards.”.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was instituted by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to strengthen credit card data security among merchants worldwide.
The PCI SSC was formed in 2006 by the five major credit card companies (AMEX, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and JCB International) to combat the growing threat of identity theft and cyber crime with a standardized set of protocols for merchants, called the PCI DSS. A company is deemed “PCI Compliant” when it meets these standards and receives certification from a PCI accredited auditor. Fibernet became PCI Compliant in 2009 and has maintained its certification ever since.
PCI has six objectives:
- Network Security: The network is protected from outside threats or corruption.
- Protected Credit Card Processing: Cardholder data is stored and transmitted securely.
- Invulnerable Infrastructure: Access to data is controlled and selective.
- Secure Data Access Policies: The network is protected from outside threats or corruption.
- Strong System Security: The system is regularly scanned and closely monitored for security breaches.
- Employee Security Awareness: Company-wide information security policies are present and enforced.
Any company processing or storing credit card information must be compliant with the PCI DSS or be subject to hefty fines as well as the daily risk of a security breach. By performing annual audits to maintain compliance, merchant companies can stay a step ahead of identity thieves and cyber criminals, who are constantly adapting their tactics to exploit weak or outdated systems and procedures. The PCI SSC strives to stay up-to-date with the most current threats and implements defenses across the board by evolving the PCI standards and offering newer tools and strategies.
