This book provides information, guidelines, best practices, relevant sources and explanation of the PCI Standards, majorly the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), PCI Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), PIN Transactional Security Standard (PTS) and Point-to-Point Encryption Standard (P2PE). Commonly referred to as the PCI Standards Family, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) has developed this set of standards to ensure the protection of cardholder data. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS is one of the most important data security standards of the recent times. All organizations that handle credit card information as a part of their business need to meet the standard's data security requirements. The author has expertly crafted this book as a guide for individuals undertaking the journey to achieve PCI DSS compliance with required proper understanding. The PCI SSC standards provide particular and very specific guidelines for merchants, business and all other entities that are involved in the storage, processing or transmission of cardholder data and sensitive card information. This book aims to educate all stakeholders and entities about PCI standards, guidelines and best practices as outlined by the PCI SSC, and the importance of complying with the PCI standards. These standards cover all aspects of the payment card lifecycle, from the designing, production, development, usage and destruction at the end of life, to the design, development, and manufacturing of software and hardware that are utilized for storing, transmitting and processing cardholder information and sensitive card data. A single solution doesn't guarantee security against all external/internal threats and the risks of customer card data. But you are proceeding in the right direction if you are trying to understand the standard and achieve compliance.
