PCI DSS - What Is It?
PCI Security Standards are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data. The standards apply to all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data – with requirements for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.
The Council is responsible for managing the security standards, while compliance with the PCI set of standards is enforced by the founding members of the Council: American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard and Visa Inc. Read more about the PCI Security Standards below.
Attestation Of Compliance (AOC)
An Attestation Of Compliance, also known as AOC, is a form used by merchants and service providers, eg. payment service providers, to showcase the results of a PCI DSS assessment and thereby prove their security standard.
