How PCI Compliance Works
Compliance with the Payment Card Industry
(PCI) data security standard is required of all merchants
that store, process, or transmit cardholder data. A "merchant"
is defined as any entity accepting payment via any form
of payment card. The program applies to all payment channels,
including retail (brick-and-mortar), mail/telephone order,
and e-commerce. The PCI standard is endorsed by all credit
card brands within their respective programs, including
Visa (CISP and AIS programs), MasterCard (SDP), American
Express, DiscoverCard and JBC.
The PCI Data Security Standard consists
of twelve basic requirements and corresponding sub-requirements.
Certification of Compliance
Separate and distinct from the mandate to
comply with the PCI Data Security Standard is the certification,
or validation, of compliance whereby entities verify and
demonstrate their compliance status. It is a fundamental
and critical function that identifies and corrects vulnerabilities,
and protects customers by ensuring that appropriate levels
of cardholder information security are maintained.
McAfee's interactive PCI Wizard walks you
through each step of the certification process- including
identifying what needs to be scanned, preparing the required
security policy documents, and completing the self-assessment
questionnaire. Unlimited online and telephone support
from our expert staff is also included.
Compliance validation requirements
are based on the annual volume of transactions, the potential
risk, and exposure introduced into the payment system
by merchants and service providers.

PCI data security standard requirements see Visa's
