Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a critical standard that sets out all the rules that businesses must follow when paying or collecting with credit and debit cards. Even the slightest vulnerability in bank card or credit card systems can cause great damage to institutions. Banks, e-commerce sites and institutions hosting online payment systems are among the sectors that use these systems the most. All other processes at the point where credit card numbers, bank accounts and digital payment systems come into contact with the physical world should be kept under constant control due to high risk rates.
The development of applications and software used by businesses is very critical. In this context, in order to establish a strong application security, it is important to protect and transfer cardholder data, and to regularly test security systems and processes. If software development activities are carried out by a third party person/institution, it is important to carry out second party audits according to PCI-DSS criteria.
Since credit card and debit card information are counted as personal data within the scope of Personal Data Protection Law No. 6698, there are considerable legal sanctions in case of violation of these data. In case of a violation, it is the responsibility of the enterprises to declare the technical measures taken within the scope of the KVKK. Organizations that transact via credit card over the Internet are obliged to prove their compliance with the PCI-DSS Standard. At this stage, PCI-DSS is of great importance.
