PCI Power Point Presentation

Complying With
Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standards (PCI DSS)
We live and work in a global
community. Most of us give
very little thought to handing
over our credit or debit card
to complete strangers or
entering our card data into a
We do this in good faith,
expecting that our information
will be protected. Yet, each year
millions of Americans are
affected by credit card theft.
With confidence their data is safe,
individuals engage in payment card
activity with Longwood University daily.
They depend on us to protect their cardholder and other
personal information. We must maintain a secure data
environment; loss of consumer confidence can have
serious repercussions for our institution.
As a University employee, temporary
hire, student or volunteer who
processes payment card transactions,
you are responsible for protecting and
securing cardholder data at all times.
Education is at risk: While many departments want to accept credit
cards, they have different needs and some have little or no
knowledge of credit card security requirements.

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are
administered by the PCI Security Standards Council, which was
founded by VISA, MC, AMEX, DISCOVER, and JCB.
PCI DSS applies to all entities that store, process or transmit
credit card data. If you are a merchant who accepts or
processes payment cards, you MUST comply with PCI DSS!
Entities in the Payment Card “Ecosystem”:
PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC)
Founded by card associations and responsible for administering PCI DSS
PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)
Technical and operational requirements set by PCI SSC to protect
cardholder data
Person holding a credit or debit card
Card Associations (Brands) – VISA,MC, AMEX,Discover,JCB
Enforce compliance with the PCI DSS
Entities in the Payment Card “Ecosystem”:
Issuing Bank
Bank that issues payment cards to consumers (cardholders)
Acquiring Bank
Contracts for payment services with merchant; merchant must validate
PCI DSS compliance with its “acquirer”; acquirer reports compliance
status to card associations
Entity that sells goods/services and accepts cards; responsible for
safeguarding credit card data and complying with the PCI DSS
Service Provider
Entity that provides all or some of the payment services for the
merchant; responsible for safeguarding credit card data and complying
with the PCI DSS
The goal of PCI DSS is to protect cardholder data whenever it is
processed, stored or transmitted. Sensitive authentication data
(magnetic stripe data, chip data, CAV2/CID/CVC2/CVV2) must NEVER
be stored after authorization.
The Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) is a tool by which eligible
merchants and service providers can validate their PCI DSS compliance
through self-assessment.
