What is PCI Compliance | Solidgate

PCI Compliance


PCI Compliance, short for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance, is a set of security standards established to ensure the secure handling of sensitive information during electronic payment transactions. Developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), PCI DSS Compliance encompasses a comprehensive set of requirements for businesses that handle payment card data.

These requirements include the implementation of secure network infrastructures, encryption of cardholder data, access control measures, regular system monitoring, and the adoption of information security policies. Achieving and maintaining PCI Compliance is mandatory for merchants, financial institutions, and service providers involved in processing payment card transactions.

Compliance with PCI DSS standards helps protect against data breaches, fraud, and unauthorized access, instilling confidence in customers and contributing to the overall security of the electronic payment ecosystem.
