The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. This document, PCI Data Security Standard Requirements and Security Assessment Procedures, uses as its foundation the 12 PCI DSS requirements, and combines them with corresponding testing procedures into a security assessment tool. It is designed for use by assessors conducting onsite reviews for merchants and service providers who must validate compliance with the PCI DSS. Below is a high-level overview of the 12 PCI DSS requirements. The next several pages provide background about preparing for, conducting, and reporting a PCI DSS assessment, whereas the Detailed PCI DSS Requirements begin on page 13.
