Merchant Services and PCI Compliance

Our team works together to maintain Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) for SDSU. Departments that wish to accept payment cards must comply with SDSU’s PCI DSS policies and procedures. PCI DSS standards involve the people, processes and technology that store, process or transmit cardholder data. PCI compliance mitigates risk, protects the University against the costs of a breach, and strengthens overall security. Compliance within PCI DSS provides protection for not only students, but for employees, alumni and our customers.

New Hire Training

Each person with access to payment card data, applications or systems, is required to take PCI training at the point of hire and annually, at a minimum. 

What Do I Need To Do

Please follow the guidelines for new hire training and annual training. Inform your supervisor once you have successfully completed all trainings.
