PCI is a security standard that was founded by various card associations, including Visa and MasterCard. The full standard is known as PCI DSS or the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

The goal of the standard is to ensure the protection of card-holder data. In an online merchant environment, card-holder data typically refers to the PAN (Primary Account Number) displayed on the card, the card-holders name, card expiry date and CVV or security code on the back of the card.

The PCI standard requires that any company that is involved in any way with the processing, storage or transmission of card-holder data needs to be PCI compliant.
