PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)PCI DSS is a global information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry security standards council (PCI SSC) and is an acknowledgement that a server has been secured to the standards laid down by the organisation. The purpose is to reduce credit card fraud and applies to all organisations which process, store, or transmit cardholder information.
A PCI DSS compliant server is one that is regularly tested and constantly monitored to maintain the strictest security standards and regularly undergoes harsh tests to prove that these standards have been upheld; it is the ultimate confirmation that the server concerned is secure and capable of handling extremely sensitive personal information.
We hold this certification through our data centre providers. This standard shows our dedication to protecting you and your clients from credit card fraud. For more information please visit PCI Security Standards.
