WHAT IS THE PCI DSS STANDARD?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of questions that each merchant who handles, accepts or transmits merchant service credit or debit cards must answer and attest to. PCI DSS is written and maintained by the PCI Security Standards Council.

WHAT SI THE SELF-ASSESSMENT QUESTIONNAIRE?

The Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) is the actual set of questions that the merchant must answer. There are currently four SAQ’s available to answer. The merchant needs to choose the SAQ that best fits how the merchant processes credit cards on a per-Merchant Identification Number (MID) basis. Many merchants have more than one MID for example an MID for the retail store and a separate MID for the ecommerce store.

WHO NEEDS SCANNING?

Any MID who answers SAQ C or D needs scanning. If you use an outside vendor and you do not receive or store credit card numbers, you qualify for SAQ A and therefore, do not have to be scanned.
