What is PCI DSS?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) identifies the requirements that must be met in order to keep cyber defenses primed against attacks aiming to steal credit card data.
The PCI Data Security Council, founded in 2006 by Visa Inc., MasterCard, and other major credit card companies, communicates the data security standard requirements that must be met.
Compliance is acknowledged when the institution accepting credit card payments has met all of the applicable PCI DSS requirements.
The college adheres to the requirements as outlined by the PCI Security Council. For further information see pcisecuritystandards.org.
