Added security thanks to PCI DSS

PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, the global security standard for card data. The security guidelines laid down by PCI offer effective protection against theft and misuse.

The leading card organizations, including Visa and MasterCard, have initiated PCI DSS in order to enhance security of card payments and protect merchants and cardholders against card data theft. Sensitive card data need protecting at all times – during processing, transmission and saving.

Acquirers, service providers and you as merchants are bound to comply with PCI DSS. PCI DSS consists of 12 binding requirements. Compliance with these standards must be certified anew each year. SIX Payment Services provides you with active support to help you do this.
