The Financial Compliance office works with each university merchant to develop a process to adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS). The PCI DSS Program is a mandated set of security standards that were created by the major credit card companies to offer merchants and service providers a complete, unified approach to safeguarding cardholder data for all credit card brands.
