What Does PCI Compliance Mean?

"PCI Compliance  for Dummies" Answers All Your Questions About Securing Cardholder Data

The question "What Does PCI Compliance Mean?" is frequently asked by small business people just starting out. It is a query that needs to be answered fully to avoid running into issues that could sink an uninformed proprietor. 

If your business or organization processes, transmits, or stores payment cardholder data, then you must comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS), which are rules about how you must handle the information you get from your customers via a credit card transaction.

Why are regulations necessary? Because your cardholder data is the main target of data thieves and you must agree to guard it by following the standards or risk being denied the ability to process credit card payments.
