Answers To Help You Understand PCI Compliances

What is PCI?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that ALL companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. The PCI DSS applies to ANY organization, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits, or stores any cardholder data.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was launched on September 7, 2006, to manage the ongoing evolution of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards, with a focus on improving payment account security throughout the transaction process. However, it is important to note that the payment brands and acquirers are responsible for enforcing compliance, not the PCI council.

What are the PCI compliance ‘levels’ and how are they determined?

All merchants will fall into one of the four merchant levels, based on Visa transaction volume over 12 months. Transaction volume is based on the aggregate number of Visa transactions from a merchant Doing Business As (‘DBA’). In cases where a merchant corporation has more than one DBA, Visa acquirers must consider the aggregate volume of transactions stored, processed, or transmitted by the corporate entity to determine the validation level. If data is not aggregated, such that the corporate entity does not store, process, or transmit cardholder data on behalf of multiple DBAs, acquirers will continue to consider the DBA’s individual transaction volume, to determine the validation level.
