Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance

Better manage the security of your payment card transactions. 

Protect your customers—and your reputation.

When companies are attacked, personal and financial customer information from payment card data is often the target. Customers trust you with their data, and a breach could permanently damage your reputation. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was designed to help protect payment data from the point of purchase and beyond.

With Payment Card Industry Compliance services from Verizon, you can assess, manage, and implement a PCI DSS plan to help your business maintain PCI compliance and secure your customer information. At Verizon, we also have one of the largest and most experienced PCI assessment teams in the world, and have conducted hundreds of security assessments around the globe. 

What is PCI Compliance?

PCI DSS is a set of security requirements for companies that process and transmit credit card transactions. PCI compliance helps keep you and your customers’ sensitive personal data secure and out of the hands of cyber criminals. With one of the largest teams of Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) worldwide, we know what it takes to achieve and maintain PCI compliance and improve your risk profile.

How does PCI Compliance work?

We’ve developed long-standing relationships with all of the leading payment card brands and have a clear understanding of what they expect in terms of PCI compliance. We use a risk-based methodology in our assessment, which means we dig deep to help you validate PCI compliance and maintain your security resilience.
