PCI Compliance Guide: Email Communication


Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance is essential for any organization that handles credit card information. Adhering to these standards ensures the security of cardholder data and reduces the risk of data breaches. One crucial aspect of PCI compliance is the handling of payment information in email communications. This guide provides an overview of PCI compliance and outlines best practices for handling forms of payment in email communications.

Understanding PCI Compliance

PCI DSS is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. The standard is governed by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), which was created by major credit card companies such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.

The primary objectives of PCI DSS are to:

1. Protect cardholder data
2. Maintain a secure network
3. Implement strong access control measures
4. Regularly monitor and test networks
5. Maintain an information security policy
