The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council is comprised of the major credit card associations (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Japan Card).
They have established a set of security standards to ensure that merchants and service providers follow best practices in order to reduce credit card fraud and security breaches. By accepting VISA and MasterCard payments, merchants and service providers are required to become Payment Card Industry compliant.
To provide you with the tools needed to fulfill Payment Card Industry compliance mandates, Central Payment has partnered with ControlScan, an Approved Scanning Vendor by the Payment Card Industry.
