PCI DSS Level 1 Certification
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) refers to the payment cards industry data security standards. PCI data security standards are requirements determined by a council (PCI SSC) consisting of representatives of companies with global card networks such as American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and JCB. They ensure the security of card and PCI DSS Level 1 is a set to a standard to ensure the highest level of security for businesses that store, transmit, or process credit card data.
The highest compliance level, PCI DSS Level 1, identifies any merchant who processes more than 6 million Visa transactions per year. This high level of verification is granted only if the merchant, at Visa’s discretion, meets level 1 requirements set to minimize risk to the system.
PCI Compliance Level 1 is one of the four PCI merchant compliance levels and two service provider compliance levels established to protect the security of credit card and cardholder data in e-commerce and in-store transactions, essential in modern Self Storage businesses.
A “Level 1” merchant is defined by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as someone who processes at least 1 million, 2.5 million, or 6 million transactions per year, depending on which credit cards the merchant accepts. Therefore, PCI Compliance Level 1 is the highest and most stringent PCI DSS level.
