Get to know

What is PCI-DSS and PII?

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a set of standards governing how companies securely handle credit card information. The goal of PCI-DSS is to protect cardholder information and reduce the risk of data breaches and credit card fraud. PCI-DSS is a global standard and is applicable to any organization, regardless of its size or location, that handles payment card information.​

Personally identifiable information (PII) refers to any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as full name, address, SSN, and biometric data. While PII is a broad category of data and not all of it is applicable to the financial industry, there is considerable overlap between PCI and PII as it relates to consumer banking and payment information.​
