In addition to Federal and State data privacy regulations, retailers must concern themselves with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security certification. DSS compliance requires that not only do you protect cardholder information you must also maintain the integrity of your card data collection system. You must regularly monitor all collection devices to make sure they function properly and have not been tampered with. There are 12 security issues that must be maintained for PCI DSS Compliance
3rd party service providers must be certified PCI DSS compliant as well
You are required to confirm that any 3rd party service provider that comes in contact with card holder data which includes data storage media as well as card data collection devices is certified by the PCI DSS council for that activity.
PCI defines a service provider as: A Business entity that is not a payment brand, directly involved in processing, storage, or transmission of cardholder data. This also includes companies that provide services that control or impact the security of card holder data.
