PCI (Payment Card Industry) is a data security standard assembled by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). The standard helps organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud with increased controls around data and compromise exposure. The standard applies to all organizations that hold, process or pass cardholder information from any card marked with one of the card brands’ logos.
