PCI DSS Principles

PCI DSS is the global data security standard adopted by the payment card brands for all entities that process, store or transmit cardholder data. The 12 requirements set forth by the PCI SSC are both operational and technical, and the core focus of these rules is to protect cardholder data at all times.
All requirements pertain to a principle, and these principles are:
Maintain firewall to protect consumer data

Secure network

Protect and encrypt cardholder data transmissions

Data protection

Maintain secure systems by targeting vulnerabilities.

Risk management

Restrict access to cardholder data by a need-to-know basis.

Access control
