Why Security Matters

The security of cardholder data affects everybody.

The breach or theft of cardholder data affects the entire payment card ecosystem. Customers suddenly lose trust in merchants or financial institutions, their credit can be negatively affected -- there is enormous personal fallout. Merchants and financial institutions lose credibility (and in turn, business), they are also subject to numerous financial liabilities.

Following PCI security standards is just good business. Such standards help ensure healthy and trustworthy payment card transactions for the hundreds of millions of people worldwide that use their cards every day.

Hackers want your cardholder data. By obtaining the Primary Account Number (PAN) and sensitive authentication data, a thief can impersonate the cardholder, use the card, and steal the cardholder’s identity.

Take a look at the payment card diagram. Everything at the end of a red arrow is sensitive cardholder data. Anything on the back side and CID must never be stored. You must have a good business reason for storing anything else, and that data must be protected.

Sensitive cardholder data can be stolen from many places:

  • Compromised card reader
  • Paper stored in a filing cabinet
  • Data in a payment system database
  • Hidden camera recording entry of authentication data
  • Secret tap into your facility's wireless or wired network

You secure cardholder data where it is captured at the point of sale and as it flows into the payment system. The best step you can take is to not store any cardholder data. This includes protecting:

  • Card readers
  • Point of sale systems
  • Store networks & wireless access routers
  • Payment card data storage and transmission
  • Payment card data stored in paper-based records
  • Online payment applications and shopping carts
