The PCI DSS is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to increase the security of confidential payment card information and reduce payment card fraud. All organisations that store, transmit or process cardholder data must comply with the Standard.
The payment card brands - Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and Discover - regulate and enforce compliance either directly or through partner relationships with ‘acquirer’ banks.
Requirement 12.6 requires organisations to “Implement a formal security awareness program to make all personnel aware of the cardholder data security policy and procedures”.
