What is PCI DSS

Pen ticking boxesPCI 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.
