PCI DSS Requirements

PCI DSS compliance is one of the most stringent and most coveted security standards in the industry today. With 6 goals, 12 requirements, and over 300 sub-requirements for the cardholder data environment, PCI Data Security Standard is developed by PCI Security Standard Council, a group of card brands in the world including Visa, MasterCard, Amex, JCB and Discover.

PCI compliance helps us to reduce the risk of our payment systems getting breached and minimizes the risk of theft of cardholder data.

We follow an extensive independent third-party audit on PCI DSS by India's CERT-IN Empanelled Auditor adopting the highest security posture. It involves using a meticulously developed compliance validation structure and security monitoring tools. Our auditor annually certifies our compliance with security requirements developed by the PCI Security Standards Council.
