PCI Compliance

Welcome to our PCI Compliance Information page. Here, we aim to provide you with important details about the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and our commitment to maintaining compliance.

PCI Compliance refers to adherence to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which is a set of security standards established to protect sensitive cardholder data. These standards are mandated by major credit card companies to ensure the security of payment card transactions and reduce the risk of data breaches and fraud.

PCI compliance is crucial for businesses that handle payment card information. Compliance helps to:

  1. Protect sensitive data: PCI DSS guidelines help safeguard cardholder data from unauthorized access, ensuring customer trust and loyalty.
  2. Prevent data breaches: By implementing robust security measures, businesses can minimize the risk of data breaches and the associated financial and reputational damage.
  3. Ensure legal compliance: Failure to comply with PCI DSS standards can result in significant fines and penalties, as well as damage to your business's reputation.

At the University of Idaho, we take PCI compliance seriously. We are committed to:

  1. Implementing robust security measures: We adhere to PCI DSS guidelines and regularly review and update our security protocols to protect cardholder data.
  2. Providing a secure payment environment: Our systems and processes are designed to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of payment card information.
  3. Regular audits and assessments: We conduct regular audits and assessments to identify and address any potential vulnerabilities and ensure ongoing compliance with PCI DSS standards.

As a valued customer, you can help support our efforts to maintain PCI compliance by:

  1. Using secure payment methods: Whenever possible, use secure payment methods such as credit cards with built-in fraud protection.
  2. Protecting your card information: Safeguard your card information and avoid sharing it with unauthorized individuals or websites.
  3. Reporting suspicious activity: If you notice any suspicious activity related to your payment card, please contact us immediately.
