PCI-DDS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard which is the standard that all organizations, including those online, must follow when storing, processing, and transmitting a customer’s credit or debit card information. The standards were created and are maintained by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
To be compliant, companies doing transactions must use a firewall between wireless networks and their cardholder data environment, use the latest security and authentication (such as WPA/WPA2) change default settings for wired privacy keys, and use a network intrusion detection system.
