PCI DSS Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) protects cardholder data (CHD).

It prevents thieves from stealing credit card data or CHD and using it to commit fraud, which affects consumer confidence and damages your reputation as a merchant. 

PCI DSS covers the security of systems and networks that store, process or transmit card data. It only covers credit card transactions. Learn more about the PCI Security Standards Council, what it does, and why it’s important.

Who Should Comply?

All UBC Credit Card Merchants that store, process or transmit CHD as payments to UBC and/or operate Point of Sale (POS) systems and devices must be PCI DSS v.3.2 compliant.

How to Comply

Each UBC merchant is responsible for ensuring and validating their own compliance at their own cost, and compliance must be renewed annually.
