PCI-DSS is a set of detailed requirements for enhancing payment account data security. The standards were developed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which includes companies such as American Express, JP Morgan Chase, MasterCard, Visa, and Wells Fargo. The council focuses on helping to facilitate a wider adoption of data security measures on a global basis. Plaza Dynamics works with organizations to tailor solutions that meet their specific requirements as it pertains to PCI-DSS. Every customer environment is unique and as such are their compliance requirements.
Who Needs to Maintain PCI-DSS Compliance?

PCI Compliance consists of 12 steps across six categories:
