2022 PCI SSC North America Community Meeting
The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is a global group that brings together key players in the payments sector to create and promote the implementation of data security guidelines and tools for secure international payments.
Its goal is to increase the security of payment account data globally by creating standards and providing services that encourage stakeholders to use them effectively. In order to do this, we use a strategic framework to direct our decision-making process and make sure that every effort serves the demands of the international payments sector as well as our goal.
A policy-making Executive Committee made up of members from American Express, Discover, JCB International, Mastercard, UnionPay, and Visa Inc. oversees the PCI SSC. Individual payment brands, not the PCI SSC, are responsible for enforcing compliance with PCI Standards and determining any noncompliance fines. The Strategic Framework is used by the PCI SSC to assist stakeholders in enhancing security for payment cardholder data, as explained in this At-a-Glance.
