The PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS (Data Security Standard) is a global recognized standard that applies to any types of business which store, process or transmit cardholder data. PCI DSS is intended to help the Payment Card Industry to strengthen its information security system so that its client can be protected proactively.

According to the Statistics of Payment Cards Issued in Hong Kong for Second Quarter 2012 released by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority on 17 September, 12, the total value of credit card transaction was HKD$112.2 billion for Q2/2012 (a 6.3% rise from Q2/2011). This shows the circulation of payment card data is expanding.

Furthermore, the deception rate in Hong Kong is rising approximately 12.4% from 2011 to 2012 (based on the statistic from Hong Kong Police Force). To encourage the payment card customers to use their cards continuously, fulfilling the PCI DSS requirement can help. Why? It is because it can be used as a promotion tool to showcase your effort in protecting your customers.
