What is PCI DSS?

Find out how to protect your customers' data

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is a set of mandatory requirements designed to safeguard cardholder data. PCI DSS compliance is mandatory for any business that processes card transactions.

When your business accepts a card payment, each transaction involves sensitive cardholder information. To protect customers and your business from the increasing threat of card fraud, this data must be processed, stored, and transmitted securely.

When you start actively accepting card payments, we register your details with our PCI Partner Sysnet Global Solutions. You receive a welcome letter followed by your sign in credentials, via two separate emails. The welcome letter tells you what you need to do to start the compliance process.

Your business is required to update their compliance registration every year to confirm they are still compliant and register any changes within their business. This is required for all payment providers.
