The credit card industry established the PCI Data Security Standards to provide a minimum standard for how vendors should protect data to ensure it is not stolen by fraudsters.

Security breaches continue to occur on a regular basis, affecting millions of customers and costing companies millions of dollars in fines and reparations.
