The higher the volume of financial transactions, the more attempts of fraud, password theft and other virtual threats. The PCI Security Standards Council was created to tackle these threats: an organization created under an initiative of the payment industry. Its goal is to develop and disseminate security standards regarding data protection.
The PCI standard was created in 2006 by a committee featuring the top credit card brands worldwide. From that point on, the IT environment security requirements to process data from these cards were established. The PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Security Standard) ensures the security of environments and protection of data from credit card transactions
