PCI / DSS Compliant Hosting

Overview – The PCI Security Standards Council is an open global forum, launched in 2006, that is responsible for the development, management, education, and awareness of the PCI Security Standards, including the Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), and PIN Transaction Security (PTS) requirements. The Council’s five founding global payment brands — American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard, and Visa Inc. — have agreed to incorporate the PCI DSS as the technical requirements of each of their data security compliance programs. Each founding member also recognizes the QSAs, PA-QSAs and ASVs certified by the PCI Security Standards Council. All five payment brands, along with Strategic Members, share equally in the Council’s governance, have equal input into the PCI Security Standards Council and share responsibility for carrying out the work of the organization. Other industry stakeholders are encouraged to join the Council as Strategic or Affiliate members and Participating Organizations to review proposed additions or modifications to the standards. On this website – link below – you’ll find useful information about the PCI Security Standards Council, the PCI DSS requirements for merchants, vendors and security consulting companies, and the Council’s certification and merchant support services, all created to mitigate data breaches and prevent payment cardholder data fraud.
