What is PCI Compliance?
PCI Compliance is a standard of security established for any business that processes credit card payments. Whether you have a computerized POS system, process transactions over the phone and do manual imprints, process transactions through a credit card terminal, or have an e-commerce website, PCI establishes a series of best practices and minimum security protocols that must be observed for your business type. More information on these business types can be found on our dedicated PCI Compliance website.
In addition to a private organization, the PCI Security Standards Council (formed from many of our industry's leading companies, including Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover® and Japan Card®), the United States government has also become involved, passing bills into law such as FACTA (the Fair Accurate Credit Transaction Act), which has elements that control how merchants process credit cards.
Tailored Transactions has a dedicated website to assist all of our merchants in becoming fully compliant with the PCI DSS standard, regardless of business size or past experience with PCI compliance.
