PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) is a set of strict comprehensive requirements (applicable to systems and processes) created by the card issuers, intended to ensure and regulate the security of sensitive payment card data. Any company processing, storing or transmitting payment card data must comply with these PCI standards.
As a Payment Processor and Service Provider, Card Access Services operates sophisticated systems and employs processes to secure payment card data during transmission and storage to ensure that our customers are protected at all times from fraudulent activities and attacks in accordance with PCI DSS.
