What is PCI Compliance?
“PCI” stands for “payment card industry.” Any entity (including fraternal organizations) that accepts a debit or credit card payment is required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) developed by the PCI Security Standards Council.
The PCI Security Standards Council — which was founded by multiple payment card processors such as Visa®, MasterCard® Worldwide, and American Express® — developed the PCI DSS to enhance credit and debit card data security. These security standards include requirements for security management, policies and procedures, network architecture and other proactive measures to secure credit card information. Any organization that processes payment card information, must adhere to these security standards.
Being PCI-compliant helps protect your organization from incurring substantial fines and allows you to continue to accept donations and payments by credit card. To help you in your efforts of becoming PCI-compliant, OmegaFi offers various payment services for fraternal organizations.
