Visa Rules specify that all Visa clients must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS is a comprehensive security standard intended to help organizations proactively protect customer account data. Visa issuers that are directly connected to VisaNet and process on behalf of other Visa clients must demonstrate PCI DSS compliance to Visa every 12 months.
All other Visa issuers must comply with the PCI DSS, but are not required to demonstrate their compliance directly with Visa. Visa has discretion to require any client or its service providers to demonstrate compliance.
The Issuer PIN Security Guidelines provides best practices and recommendations for Issuers managing PINs within their environment. Visa highly encourages Issuers to review and follow these guidelines to protect PIN data within Issuers domains.
Visa issuers are required to register all third party agents they use to ensure compliance with Visa Rules and policies regarding their use of Third Party Agents (TPA). The TPA Registration Program helps Visa and issuers better manage TPA relationships.
Visa issuers must perform due diligence prior to using any TPA and must ensure they have policies and procedures in place to ensure proper oversight and control of the TPA regarding their Visa program.
Issuer Common Point of Purchase (CPP) reporting is critical intelligence to help monitor the security of the payment eco-system. As data compromises continue to emerge, many Visa clients attempt to determine if a CPP exists.
To help issuers validate claims of a suspected compromise, Visa partnered with issuers to develop an enhanced CPP form (AP, Canada, CEMEA, LAC, U.S. version) for easy reporting to Visa. This report is required in order for an investigation to be considered. The CPP form also helps align a common process that all issuers must adhere to for an investigation to be initiated.
