Pete is an experienced payments industry professional, having spent over 15 years dealing with PCI DSS and card brand compliance issues in various roles. This site exists to share some of that accumulated knowledge, and to answer questions frequently asked in forums by people starting out on their PCI Journey.

Standard disclaimers apply: nothing in this site is intended to be legal advice, or formal guidance on how to address specific compliant issues. I’m not your QSA, and I’m not doing your risk assessment.

If you are in any way unsure about some aspect of PCI DSS, consider retaining a QSA and asking them for guidance.
