Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance is designed to protect businesses and their customers from credit card theft and fraud. All businesses or service providers that store, process, or transmit payment card data are required to comply with the data standard, regardless of business size or the amount of annual payment card transactions. Any customer that is an IATA-accredited location and accepts card transactions falls under the PCI DSS compliance obligations. Part of your responsibility as an agent is to provide proof of PCI DSS compliance to IATA. Your travel agency has partnered with SecurityMetrics, a leading provider of PCI compliance solutions, to ensure you have access to the best tools available in achieving PCI compliance.
