Transactional Security


Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS

To ensure payment card information is not compromised and provide all parties involved with the best possible protection against data misuse, credit card schemes have introduced a safety standard for the handling of payment card and transaction information. This standard, known as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS, applies equally to banks (issuers and acquirers), payment service providers, hosting providers, merchants, and payment application providers. Compliance with these PCI DSS standards is verified at regular intervals. Parties who cannot furnish proof of PCI DSS certification are not permitted to process payment card information.

We offer comprehensive advice, preparation, auditing, and verification of your security measures, thereby supporting you in all requirements for PCI DSS certification. If you meet the PCI DSS standards, as an accredited certification body we can supply you with the TÜV SÜD certification mark and all evidence required by the credit-card schemes. Depending on whether you are a service provider, software manufacturer, merchant, or acquirer, you need to comply with various requirements and security-assessment procedures of the PCI DSS and/or PA DSS.
