The payment card industry is regulated by the 5 major Credit Card Brands through the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). This Council was established primarily for the purpose of securing the confidential data that is transferred during a credit card transaction. The council facilitates the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis and monitors those measures through annual audits to be sure they are maintained. When properly maintained these procedures will secure sensitive data, preventing financial loss, damage to customer relations and increased costs. Intersec Worldwide’s experienced consultants can assist you in assessing possible threats and maintaining your companies compliance with the PCI standards.
