Outsourcing PCI Compliance: Selecting the Right Service Provider to Achieve and Maintain PCI Compliance
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an evolving set of security requirements designed for entities that store, process, or transmit cardholder data. These entities must maintain a secure Cardholder Data Environment (CDE). Compliance with PCI DSS is a sound business practice that also serves to keep sensitive data secure. As a business grows and conducts an increasing number of annual credit card transactions, it is subject to increasingly complex compliance requirements.
