PCI Security Standards Council is an open global forum for the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination and implementation of security standards for account data protection. As a part of this initiative the council has published a set of standards, called the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These standards apply to all payment card network members, merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and affect all payment channels, including retail (brick and mortar), mail/telephone order and ecommerce.
