In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, PCI Security Standards and resources are critical to helping organizations secure payment data and prevent, detect and mitigate attacks that can lead to costly data breaches.

To help support the industry’s ongoing efforts to protect businesses and their customers from these types of attacks, Reciprocity has joined the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) as a new Participating Organization, and will work with the organization to help secure payment data worldwide through the ongoing development and adoption of the PCI Security Standards.

The PCI SSC leads a global, cross-industry effort to increase payment security by providing flexible, industry-driven and effective data security standards and programs. The keystone is the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process and preventing, detecting and mitigating criminal attacks and breaches. PCI DSS control objectives and compliance requirements affect any business that handles payment processing, storage, or transmission of credit card data electronically – most often, this is eCommerce and Retail businesses.

As a Participating Organization, Reciprocity will be able to add its voice to the standards development process and will collaborate with a growing community of more than 800 Participating Organizations to improve payment security worldwide. The company will also have the opportunity to recommend new initiatives for consideration to the PCI Security Standards Council and share cross-sector experiences and best practices at the annual PCI Community Meetings.
