PCI Compliance

Introduction to PCI-DSS

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) are regulations that were created to ensure safe handling of sensitive credit card information and to protect cardholder data from loss or misuse by ensuring the implementation of adequate controls and safeguards to the merchant’s systems and processes. PCI-DSS was developed by leading credit card companies including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. BYU Hawaii has adopted the PCI-DSS to protect and safeguard payment card data received from customers by our employees.
