Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards that serve to protect the cardholder information from security breaches. It helps in ensuring card information protection against thefts from within the organization and also from external brute forces. With growing security threats, complying to PCI-DSS is of utmost importance to merchants dealing with Payment Cards viz., credit, debit & ATM cards and the repercussions of non-compliance can be disastrous to the reputation and the finances of the organization.
To establish compliance, PCI-DSS lists out 12 major requirements and 2 special requirement-annexures that, when enforced in the organization, will considerably strengthen the security of the cardholder information that the organization handles. For an organization to be PCI compliant, they need to adhere to all the conditions as outlined by the requirements, in terms of network and resource-security.

While being compliant to PCI DSS is already a daunting task, it is also mandatory for you to prove that your organization is compliant to the standard with a set of reports or by answering questionnaires during the PCI audit. This PCI Audit is performed either with a set of questionnaires or by a Qualified Security Assessor, external to the organization.
