PCI PIN Certification

The regulation aims to reduce fraud, protect sensitive payment information and increase data security through personal identification number (PIN) protection

What is PCI PIN?

Payment Card Industry PIN Security (PCI PIN) is a regulation that seeks maximum security of the PIN (Personal Identification Number) in online and face-to-face transactions at ATMs or point-of-sale (POS) terminals, both attended and unattended.

PCI PIN objectives

  • Identify the minimum security requirements for PIN-based exchange transactions.
  • To detail the minimum acceptable requirements for the secure handling, processing and transmission of the PIN number in economic transactions.
  • Ensure all participants in the retail payment system that cardholder PIN data will not be compromised.

Who must comply with PCI PIN?

This policy applies to all acquirers and agents responsible for processing VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover and JCB (the PCI Security Standards Council marks) PIN transactions.

That is, it applies to any organization that collects with point-of-sale terminals, ATMs and other on and offline transactions involving the PIN number.
