Millions of credit and debit card transactions are completed daily. Credit and debit card usage is steadily increasing, and with it, so is the treat of fraud. With the increase of payment card fraud, it is important for the merchants who accept these types of payments to have a common standard in place to provide security in keeping card holder information safe. This is where the Payment Card Industry, Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) come into play.

PCI policies ,procedures and templates are essential for complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, but there’s much more than having them just for “check the box” regulatory compliance mandates
