PCI SSC, the PCI DSS Standard Board, is an organisation that was established to support global standards for the protection of sensitive data of payment cardholders.

Which Organizations Must Meet the PCI DSS Standard?
The PCI DSS standard is a mandatory requirement that apply to every entity that stores, transmits and processes payment card operation data.
Organisation size, as well as the volume and quantity of its transactions are not the most important factors in terms of PCI DSS requirements, which focus first and foremost on the nature of the business and data processing operations. Standard requirements can therefore apply to financial solution providers as much as organisations using external solutions m.in:
- Banks and financial companies
- Online stores and ecommerce websites
- Payment and financial service providers
- Insurance companies
- Payment services
