Meeting the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)
PCI DSS are a set of standards to help protect businesses and shoppers from data theft and fraud. It is mandatory for all businesses to comply by obtaining a PCI certificate. This applies to all types of card payments: online, by mail, over the phone or using card machines.
There are 4 levels of PCI DSS compliance. These are based on the number of transactions processed by a business annually and how they are processed (if you're accepting card payments online).
