91.0 Introduction

The payment card industry has developed technical and business standards that affect the way credit card business is conducted.  In order to continue accepting credit card payments, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside must prove and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCIDSS). The Cashier’s Office and Campus Technology Services are responsible for assuring compliance and providing guidance to all departments accepting credit card payments.  A security breach of credit card data jeopardizes the University of Wisconsin-Parkside’s ability to continue to conduct transactions.  Moreover, a breach could result in significant fines.

91.03 Policy Statement
