WHAT IS PCI?

PCI describes how to safely and securely store credit card data.

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Council tells organisations globally how credit card information should be stored. It also tells us how information can be shared among banks, processors, gateways and other businesses.

PCI protects everyone from the cardholder, right through to the processor,
bank and the merchant.
