PCI DSS Compliance from Cardonet IT Services

PCI DSS Compliance

If you store, process or transmit cardholder data, you have a requirement to comply with the PCI DSS standard. This standard was developed to protect card users from fraud, with the aim of adopting consistent data security measures globally.

Your level of compliance will vary according to the number of card payment transactions that you accept in a given year. There are 4 different levels of PCI compliance, with each level being more onerous than the last.
