PCI Compliance Foundation
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements for enhancing payment account data security. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was created by five major credit card companies Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Financial, Services, and JCB International. These companies referred with each other’s standards to create a concise and singular set of compliance standards currently known as PCI compliance or PCI DSS compliance. The aim of the council was to define security policies and guidelines to help business owners implement the necessary hardware, software and other procedures to guard sensitive credit card and personal information. On December 15, 2004, these five credit card companies united their individual policies and released version 1.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

How to stay compliance
PCI compliance means that your business is exhibiting best practices to prevent cardholder information or data security breaches. While PCI compliance is not a guarantee of security, it is an important step in prevention. Each company’s intentions were roughly similar: to create an additional level of protection for card issuers by ensuring that merchants meet minimum levels of security when they store, process and transmit cardholder data. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was formed, and on December 15, 2004, these companies aligned their individual policies and released version 1.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
