Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council

Who is the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council?

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council was launched on September 7, 2006, to manage the ongoing evolution of the Payment Card Industry security standards with a focus on improving payment account security throughout the transaction process. The PCI DSS is administered and managed by the PCI SSC (www.pcisecuritystandards.org), an independent body that was created by the major payment card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.). It is important to note that the payment brands and acquirers are responsible for enforcing compliance, not the PCI council. A copy of the PCI DSS is available here.
