PCI Hosting Requirements:
PCI Compliance is all about protecting financial data,
and specifically, the way that merchants process card payments,
transmit payment data, and how they digitally store transaction
records. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council is
an alliance of major credit card companies in charge of the
standards required to meet this requirement. Its purpose is
to create and maintain a security standard known as the PCI DSS
(Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) which each merchant must abide by.
PCI DSS is a global program that businesses and organizations around
the world must uphold if they want to accept payment cards, such
as credit cards or debit cards. PCI compliance is critical for many
businesses, so we have created a list of the principal PCI-compliant
requirementsthat every PCI DSS-compliant web host should meet.
