The "Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard" (PCI DSS for short) is the common, internationally applicable IT security standard of the leading credit card companies. All companies that process, store or forward credit card information must demonstrate that they meet the requirements of this standard.

This also applies to Worldline as well as to you in your online or retail shop and to your mail order business.

What does PCI DSS stand for?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard applies globally to all payment card data handling processes. To prevent fraud, the five largest credit card organisations (including VISA and MasterCard) have developed this standard for the secure handling of credit card data. This standard ensures that unauthorised parties cannot obtain certain information that must be protected in the worldwide exchange of data and then use it for criminal purposes.
