NACS (Alexandria, Va.) has announced its participation in the PCI Security Standards Council. The association is joining more than 20 NACS members and other organizations committed to evolving the PCI Data Security Standard and other payment card data protection standards.
As a participating organization, NACS will have access to the latest payment card security standards from the council, and provide feedback on the standards and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 450 organizations. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity’s best protection against data criminals.
The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity.
