The PCI Security Standard Council was established by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International to facilitate industry-wide adoption of consistent payment card data security, developed by the PCI Data Security Standards Council.

PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.  PCI-DSS is a set of requirements for enhancing payment account data security, developed by the PCI Security Standards Council.

PCI SAQ stands for Payment Card Industry Self-Assessment Questionnaire.  The PCI DSS self-assessment questionnaires (SAQs) is a validation questionnaire intended to assist your business and report your results of your self-assessment.  There are different SAQ types based on the types and amounts of payment transactions your business accepts.

Why does my business need to be PCI Compliant?

While there are many aspects to data security, protecting your business from a data breach starts with a good foundation.  The standards outlined in the PCI process are a practical, tangible process every business must put into place to reduce vulnerability.  Businesses that complete the PCI compliance process not only have taken the first steps towards guarding against a costly breach, but also avoid non-compliance fines for forensic investigations, fraudulent purchases, and the cost of re-issuing cards.
