About the PCI Security Standards Council
The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security. The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process -- including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents. The PA-DSS applies to software vendors and other organizations that develop payment applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement, where these payment applications are sold, distributed, or licensed to third parties.
The Council's five founding global payment brands -- American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, 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.
