The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council requires that all companies, including third party service providers, involved in the transmission, processing or storage of payment card data, must adhere to the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) on an ongoing basis and demonstrate compliance annually. Maintaining PCI compliance is a board-room topic for organizations.
The amount of yearly transactions processed and the security infrastructure within your PCI network, adds to the difficultly of achieving PCI compliance. A shortage of resources with the ability to manage the PCI program continues to be the biggest obstacle for many organizations.
