Data Security StandardNo matter the size of your operation, if you accept credit card payments, you must protect cardholder data.
In 2005, Payment Card Industry Council created the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard– a requirement of all five major credit companies including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa.
The more transactions a merchant completes a year, the more checks and audits needed to remain in compliance. When transmitting credit card data merchants and stores must, at minimum, implement the following:
PCI standards fall into 6 overarching categories with a total of 12 PCI DDS requirements to remain compliant:
Build and Maintain a Secure Network

Implement Strong Access Control Measures
Regularly Test and Monitor Networks
Maintain an information security policy
