What is PCI DSS
PCI DSS is a set of 12 requirements designed to secure and protect customer payment data, as most security breaches could be avoided if merchants:
- Remove sensitive authentication data and limit data retention
- Protect the perimeter, internal and wireless networks
- Secure applications
- Protect through monitoring and access control
The University is required to be compliant by the banks in order that we may process credit/debit card information.
Using shop@le to take credit/debit cards helps reduce the scope required for PCI DSS compliance by removing the requirement to take physical payments on site.
